Pro-Life Win in West Virginia

Abortion supporters suffered a major setback in West Virginia after voters amended the state constitution.

On Tuesday 52 percent of the state's voters approved Amendment 1, which overturned a 1993 court ruling that allowed taxpayer-funded abortions. The ballot measure specifically said that the West Virginia constitution does not include the right to kill a baby in the womb, opening the door for restrictions on the practice, as well as prohibition if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. Pro-lifers celebrated the result.

"West Virginians value life and reject abortion on demand," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. "Over the years, West Virginia taxpayers have been forced to fund the destruction of more than 35,000 innocent unborn children—including late-term abortions—at a cost of nearly $10 million. This outrageous abuse ends now."

SBA List was one of the biggest backers of the amendment. Its volunteers visited more than 110,000 voters to support the measure. The group suffered a setback when Democratic senator and self-described pro-lifer Joe Manchin announced he would oppose Amendment 1 in the final debate before he won re-election.

Alabama voted to pass an amendment to the constitution declaring the state’s policy to recognize the rights of the unborn.

Fifty-nine percent of Alabamians voted in favor of Amendment 2.

The amendment recognizes the rights of the unborn and ensures state funds will not go to funding abortion care.

The amendment was written by Rep. Matt Fridy, R-Montevallo, and sponsored by the Alliance for a Pro-Life Alabama.
