West Virginia

In 2015, West Virginia passed an unconstitutional 20-week ban on abortion, successfully overriding Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto. The ban prohibits physicians from providing abortion care 22 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period (or 20 weeks post-fertilization) and includes only limited exceptions for medical emergencies and lethal fetal anomalies. It contains no exceptions for survivors of rape or incest. The ban is currently in effect.

Restrictions: 
Unconstitutionally limits abortion by gestational age after viability
Prohibits later abortion except to preserve a woman's life or physical (but not mental) health
