When the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision, power was returned to individual states to determine their own abortion laws. Shortly after this significant decision, West Virginia passed legislation banning elective abortion. 

Women cannot obtain an abortion in West Virginia.


While elective abortion is completely banned in West Virginia, exceptions are built into the new law. Exceptions include:

  • When the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest
  • When it’s necessary to protect the woman’s life
  • To ensure the woman’s physical health is maintained
  • If it’s unlikely for the fetus to survive the pregnancy

Both alternatives to abortion require a woman to carry her pregnancy to term.
