    West Virginia lawmakers advanced a resolution this week to make it clear that their state does not recognize abortion as a “right.”


    The AP reports the proposed amendment to the state constitution passed the state Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. To amend the constitution, the measure must pass the Senate and House by two-thirds majorities and then a voter referendum.

    The amendment states: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and State Senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother.”

    14th Amendment - it states ."..person born..." so their theory is that since a baby is not yet born he does not have any rights.
