Local group wants ban on tax-payer funding for abortions
CHARLESTON, WV –
More than a dozen people gathered at the state capitol today for a press conference to call for a ban on tax-payer funding for abortions. The grassroots effort was launched by West Virginians for Life. Supporters said they don’t believe in paying for a procedure they think is morally reprehensible.
“Abortion is a practice of killing a life, not saving a life,” said Tina Simpson, a resident from Wheeling.
