Amendment backers mislead

We are troubled by the article published this week in the paper regarding Amendment 1. Those supporting this Amendment are misleading voters.

It is important for voters to know that under this Amendment, there are NO exceptions. Absolutely NO exceptions. NO exception for victims of rape. NO exception for victims of incest. NO exception for women whose health is at risk. NO exception for those suffering from an ectopic pregnancy that isn’t even viable and may kill the mother.

It’s sad that we have to say this. It’s sad that the people behind this amendment are lying. Abortion is already limited in West Virginia. The way to reduce the need further is with education, not eliminating the option for those who have no other choice.
