This 20-week old unborn child does not want to have to wait until 24 weeks to be spared the pain of abortion.
She feels pain NOW!!!  She is looking to WV legislators to protect her.


WVFL is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, HB 4588, is now in the hands of the Senate Judiciary Committee.   The committee will take up the bill on Thursday, March 6.  Here’s the latest message to give Senators on the Judiciary Committee:

“Please support HB 4588, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act as long as the pain threshold remains at 20 weeks.”
