A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new article, designated §16-2J-1, relating to requiring preemployment examinations for persons working in a facility that performs abortions; and providing penalties for violations.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

§16-2J-1. Health examinations for abortion facility employees.

Each person employed by a facility that performs abortions shall have a preemployment health examination by a physician. The examination is to be repeated annually, and more frequently, if indicated to ascertain freedom from communicable diseases.

Violation of the terms of this section shall result in an immediate closing of the facility in question for a period of at least three years, and a fine of not less than five thousand dollars.

Nothing in this section shall be construed or interpreted to condone, permit, allow or endorse any abortion.




NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to require that persons who work in facilities that provide abortions have preemployment health examinations and providing penalties for violation.

This article is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
