West Virginia lawmakers OK abortion ban with few exceptions
[www.politico.com]

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia’s Legislature passed a sweeping abortion ban with few exceptions Tuesday, approving a bill that several Republicans said they hope will make it impossible for the state’s only abortion clinic to continue to offer the procedure.

Under the legislation, rape and incest victims would be able to obtain abortions at up to eight weeks of pregnancy, but only if they report to law enforcement first. Such victims who are minors would have until 14 weeks to terminate a pregnancy and must report to either law enforcement or a physician.

Rape and incest victims would have to report the assault within 48 hours of getting an abortion, and a patient must present a copy of a police report or notarized letter to a physician before the procedure can be performed.

Abortions also would be allowed in cases of medical emergencies.

Sure, because women apparently aren't credible.

Why not just require approvals from attackers?

Does this mean that God ensouls the fetuses of pregnant minors 6 weeks later than He ensouls those of pregnant adults?

Ah, hell, they look stupid without trying.

It’s bad, but it could be worse. At least medical emergencies are excluded from the ban.
