Special Session to Override Governor Veto of Pain-Capable Bill
Sign the petition if upset about the Governor\'s Veto of the Pain-Capable Bill.
West Virginians for Life asks you to support the call for a special session in order to pass HB 4588, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This is the bill which passed overwhelmingly in both houses of the legislature only to be vetoed by Governor Tomblin on March 28. The Governor is obligated to call for a special session if three-fifths of the members of both Houses sign petitions in support of a special session. The purpose of the special session is to advance the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
You can help by contacting your legislators and asking them to join fellow pro-life legislators in calling for a special session on HB 4588. Thanks for signing the petition electronically. THE PETITION IS AVAILABLE IN PRINTABLE FORM AS WELL AS THE SPECIAL SHESSION PETITION AT:
