CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — Senate Judiciary gave its blessing on Feb. 5 to SJR 12, a proposed constitutional amendment called the “No Constitutional Right to Abortion Amendment.”

If adopted by both houses, the amendment would go before the voters in November.

The resolution is a single sentence: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.”

The committee approved the resolution in a voice vote without debate.

The resolution originated in Judiciary and goes to the full Senate.
