Special Guest : Patricia Rucker West Virginia Legislature Amendment 1  – the No Right to Abortion in Constitution Measure

  • Second year serving here in West Virginia.
  • 1993 Supreme Court decision made it so West Virginias taxpayers did in fact pay for abortions.
  • It was a VERY hard push.
  • 2/3 of Senate and 2/3 of the House HAD to agree for us to even put this to the floor prior to a vote by the public.
  • Currently NO Planned Parenthood facilities in West Virginia.
  • The authority of the state has the control to determine funds for abortion.
  • We don’t mandate to have sonograms prior to abortion and so that is the next thing I am going to work on.
  • Still much work to be done because some of the wording is very vague.
