CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — The Senate has advanced a resolution proposing a constitutional amendment on abortion.

In Wednesday’s floor session, the Senate advanced Senate Joint Resolution 12 to second reading, at which stage it can be amended. The resolution proposes a constitutional amendment to clarify that nothing in that document secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.
The resolution needs approval from two-thirds of the members and would then be submitted to voters in this year’s general election.
