Nine states thus far have enacted legislation that would limit abortions based on the pain suffered by unborn children; no court orders have blocked enforcement of any of those laws.  Scientific research has revealed that the unborn baby feels pain at 20 weeks gestation.  West Virginians for Life believes that its state residents will rally behind this life saving legislation and will pursue a bill in 2013 to that end.  Our new Legislative Coordinator John Carey is doing a great job.  He would appreciate help from citizen lobbyists.  Office staff can relay to Mr. Carey the contact information of those interested.  Call 304-594-9845.

Print a factual brochure now as well as a legal size petition and/or a letter size petition.  The petitions will be presented at the March 18, 2013 Noon Rally in Charleston in the lower rotunda of the Capitol.
