  • Reproductive rights advocates on alert after AG Morrisey comments on abortion facilities amid COVID-19 (West Virginia)

    Earlier this week, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice placed a moratorium on all “elective” procedures and surgeries in the state through an executive order, and at a Wednesday news conference, Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said the order will apply to “abortion facilities, as well.” Morrisey’s office did not respond to multiple requests to clarify or elaborate on his statement, which — if it does apply to abortions — may contradict language in the governor’s executive order. The executive order mandates all medical procedures that are “not immediately medically necessary to preserve the patient’s life or long-term health” should be rescheduled...

The sanitizer will be packaged by Total Distribution, Inc., of Nitro, and distributed by the West Virginia National Guard to health care workers and first responders across the state, O’Neal said.

In his statement the Governor said he would “suspend all elective medical procedures” effective 11:59 p.m. tonight. The purpose of these directives is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for use...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Some hospitals in West Virginia are starting to have cash flow problems with the doing away of elective surgeries and other procedures due to the coronavirus. West Virginia Hospital Association President Joe Letnaunchyn said many services normally offered are being put off in the current environment. “The Surgeon General said cancel elective surgeries and you cancel electives, you cancel other related ancillary services and the revenue stream dries up,” Letnaunchyn said during an appearance Monday on MetroNews “Talkline.” “So we’re trying to find alternate ways to provide revenue to the hospitals in the interim until the federal...

    When Pennsylvania ordered coal mines closed because of the coronavirus, then reversed course and declared them to be “essential,” West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, who made a fortune in coal, was quick to mock his neighbors. “Coal is so essential it is unbelievable,” said Justice, a Republican. “We have to have good electricity flowing into our homes.” The mine workers union agrees with him. So does President Trump, who has spent the past three years talking up the coal business. But in the face of the pandemic, is coal mining actually so essential? Because of the nature of the work...

    A representative from the WV Governor Jim Justice's office says that abortion is healthcare and not elective. However, science and statistics show that termination of a living viable human child in the womb is NOT a "medical necessity" nor "essential" to preserve the patient's life, but most often done simply because the mother desires it. Notice also what priority they place on abortion in the image below. It is listed first. So much for the importance of their "other services," which they are largely postponing at this time, but state are such a necessity for the "clinic" to stay open....

    West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has a message about the coronavirus pandemic: It’s like a scary movie. In an apparent attempt to sooth a nervous public, Justice, in a statewide address Saturday night, offered a rambling response to the virus in which he declined to order a broad lockdown, issued dire warnings about New York state, urged people to follow existing protocols and admitted that perhaps his speech could have waited until Monday. “It’s like we’re all lost in a movie that we can’t relate to in any way,” he said during the roughly 25-minute address that left many on...

    The Democratic presidential field is down to two old, white males, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Though they are said to represent two polar-opposite wings of the party, on one issue, they are in complete agreement. They both have solemnly pledged to destroy millions of blue-collar jobs across Middle America's oil patch. Each has pledged to stop oil and gas development dead in its tracks. This anti-shale and gas movement has the zeal of a religious crusade. If that green agenda comes to pass, it will reverse the economic renaissance in states such as New Mexico,...

    CHARLESTON — West Virginia remains “low risk” for COVID-19, the new coronavirus, but state officials are taking precautions and making preparations for a possible outbreak. Wednesday afternoon, Gov. Jim Justice and Department of Health and Human Resources Secretary Bill Crouch said they are in contact with federal officials and have assembled a wide-ranging team of state medical experts, educators and others in response to the rapidly spreading virus. The virus is “slightly more severe” than the flu but not as contagious as the measles, Justice said. “We don’t have a case here in West Virginia, but we’ve got to be...

    Republican Gov. Jim Justice today signed into law a bill to protect babies who survive abortions from infanticide. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (HB 4007/SB 231)now becomes state law to provide further protection for abortion survivors at a time when no Democrat running for president and Democrats in Congress have refused to do so. The Senate voted 32-0 in favor of the bill on February 10, 2020. The Born-Alive Bill’s overwhelming House passage by a 93-5 margin on January 15 was bipartisan as well. The Born-Alive Bill will enact requirements that a baby born alive during an abortion must...
