CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Abortions are now banned 20 weeks after conception in West Virginia. The ban became effective Tuesday, despite Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s disapproval. The Democrat vetoed it this year and in 2014, citing constitutionality concerns. The Republican Legislature overrode the veto easily this year with some Democratic support. Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey…

    Really? And they now know when conception is? Jackasses.

      Conception has nothing to do with it, even if they didn’t know.

    SCOTUS ruled viability is 28 weeks. That’s why these war on women laws resemble another struck down in Arizona in 2013. The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to reconsider that AZ case. Reaffirming 28 week viability.

    The ban provides some exemptions for women in medical emergencies, but not for rape and incest.

    Of course not; don’t want the population in W.V. to decline, now, do we?

    More teabalican attacks on women…Our uterus our decision!

    Where are the lawsuits against these groups who are ignoring the Constitution? These republican run states are trampling on decades long legal precedence and getting away with it.

    More conservatives ‘playing doctor’.

    I think we ought to start protecting the ultra-religious from themselves. Let’s make some laws that take away their tax-exempt status; after all, who wants to pay their taxes and, thereby, subsidizing any church, synagogue or mosque that doesn’t pay any taxes.

    Make religious institutions carry their own weight and pay their fair share of the tax burden. My gosh, even the amish horse buggys use roads.

      Agreed! Cute little yorkie those ears are perfectly adorable.

      And they don’t stop to pick up the horse poop either. The taxpayers do that.

        Yet you can suffer huge fines in some cities for not picking up an ounce of doggie poo.

      That’s why all these churches are against contraceptive and abortion. They don’t pay taxes, hence no part of their Sunday collections goes to support all the babies that are now on welfare.
      If we tax the churches, you’ll see how fast abortion becomes a sacrament, instead of a sin.

        They don’t even want to pay personal taxes for the babies they would have forced to term. They only care about babies (fetuses) in the womb, after that it’s not their problem. That’s the punishment the mother and baby have to suffer on their own. That’s “god’s” punishment for their sin. Pro-life? Can you say hypocrite?

    The same crowd that claims they ‘aren’t scientists’ when the subject of climate change comes up, are not medical experts when a women’s health is the subject. Hmmm.
    Did I spell HYPOCRISY right?
