Anti-abortion protestors gather outside Manchin campaign office

A national organization has spent about $500,000 campaigning for an anti-abortion amendment to the West Virginia constitution, the group announced Monday.

Susan B. Anthony List’s campaign for Amendment 1 has included door-to-door canvassers, radio, TV, digital and direct mail advertisements, spokeswoman Mallory Quigley said during a news conference Monday afternoon.

If Amendment 1 passes, a line will be added to the state constitution that says “nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.”

The amendment would undo a 1993 state Supreme Court decision that said low-income women had the right to an abortion with Medicaid funding.
