The AG’s office in West Virginia posted the following on its website

After a preliminary review, we are aware that few provisions of the West Virginia Code govern the provision of abortions in the State. Statutes require informed consent and parental notification, but we have not located any law that requires abortion procedures in West
Virginia to be performed by licensed physicians or any law that sets a gestational age limit governing when an abortion procedure may be performed.

The office is seeking public comment, perhaps in an effort to advise on matters of specific importance to the state of West Virginia.  If you are interested in commenting, send an email to regulatoryreview@wvago.gov.  It would be best received if the comment referenced a particular point of interest identified on the posting.
