West Virginians for Life (WVFL) is hoping the state’s legislative body will pick up where it left off and pass another pro-life bill during this 60-day session.

WVFL is seeking passage of a Dismemberment Abortion Ban. Recent undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress have shown high-ranking executives of Planned Parenthood abortionists casually discussing the way that they can dismember babies to obtain intact fetal body parts such as heads, hearts, lungs and livers, which can then be sold.

West Virginians for Life wants to protect our babies from these barbaric dismemberment abortions by passing The Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act (S.B. 10/H.B. 4004), which will ban this particular abortion procedure. This bill is already law in Kansas and Oklahoma.
