Tell West Virginia's Attorney General: Stop Targeting Abortion Providers
State by state, politicians are seizing on copycat regulations targeting abortion providers as a way to limit abortion access -- and now West Virginia's Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is trying to personally get in on the action. He bypassed the West Virginia legislature and is calling for a "review" of abortion clinic regulations.
As it is, there are only two abortion clinics in the entire state. Both of them are regulated just as all West Virginia medical clinics are, but Attorney General Morrisey is determined to dream up new regulations aimed at closing them completely.
We have seen in state after state that these targeted regulations do nothing to benefit anyone's health; instead, they only increase costs and waiting times, and result in many clinics closing entirely. The impact is felt by anyone who seeks an abortion -- but we know that it's especially disastrous for low-income women, who lack the resources to travel ever further distances, pay heightened fees, or take additional time from work.
Attorney General Morrisey is inviting public comment "from West Virginia and elsewhere." Please tell him: stop targeting abortion providers!
