A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §61-2-8a, relating to making it illegal to transport a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion without written consent by both parents; and providing for a penalty.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §61-2-8a, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 2. CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON.

§61-2-8a. Transporting a minor across state lines for an abortion;              penalty.

    If any person transports a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion, without the written consent of both parents or the legal guardians of the minor, the person is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not less than $500 nor more than $1,000, or confined in jail not more than six months, or both fined and confined.




    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to make it illegal to transport a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion without written consent by both parents, or the legal guardians of the minor; and providing for a penalty.


 This section is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
