Statement from Alisa Clements, West Virginia Director of Public Affairs, Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic:

“We are deeply disappointed in the decision of the anti-women’s health majority in the West Virginia statehouse to advance Senate Joint Resolution (SJR) 12, which will put a woman’s right to make her own deeply personal pregnancy decisions on the ballot this November. These anti-abortion politicians have blatantly disregarded West Virginia women and doctors’ expertise in favor of advancing their own extreme political agenda.

“SJR 12 is the worst piece of legislation for women in West Virginia’s history. When voters turn out to the ballot box in November, they will be deciding for all women in this state whether they have the right to self-determination and bodily autonomy. This is about trusting women to make decisions that are best for their own health, lives and their families.

“Planned Parenthood will not go quietly while politicians in Charleston attempt to take away access to the full range of reproductive health care. Until November, we will work to make sure every West Virginian understands this politically-motivated ballot measure and the extreme consequences it could have for all the women and families of this state.”
