Another Governor Signs BIll into Law Restricting Access to Abortion Services

This time it was Jim Justice, West Virginia's governor

This morning, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced he had signed a bill into law that prohibits nearly all abortions except in certain medical situations or in cases of rape or incest.

The GOP-led legislature passed House Bill 302 on Tuesday in a special session, making West Virginia the second state to pass a restrictive abortion bill after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The ban goes into effect immediately, with the bill’s criminal penalties to take effect in 90 days.
