Abortion bill approved by House Health Committee

The Dominion Post

CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — The House Health Committee approved — quickly and with little discussion — a bill to prohibit Medicaid funded abortions, except in emergencies.

HB 4012 passed in an overwhelming voice vote Jan. 25, with Republicans and Democrats voting yes; there was no head count, but it appeared that only about four delegates, all Democrats, voted against it.

The bill goes next to House Judiciary.
