The list of states promoting the procedure that can reverse a chemical abortion has grown to include West Virginia.
West Virginia has passed The Second Chances at Life Act which requires that women who undergo a chemical abortion must be informed there is a method to save the unborn baby's life if the mother acts quickly enough.
Wanda Franz of West Virginians for Life tells One News Now it is the legal role of the abortion clinic to pass on that life-saving information with the woman's discharge papers from the clinic.
“And the woman is required to sign a statement indicating that she has been told that if she changes her mind after taking the pill,” Franz explains, “that there's a procedure that's available to her that will make it possible for her to possibly save the baby's life.”
If the mother seeks help early enough, the baby can be saved. Pro-life groups say more than 2,000 women have changed their minds, and babies were saved from death, thanks to the now-publicized reversal.
Franz says West Virginia is the 11th state to pass the life-saving law.
