Who’s behind effort to embed abortion in state constitution?
Virginia activists attempting to make killing unborn children a constitutional right are the target of an investigation by the American Center for Law and Justice.
ACLJ said Monday it has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the state to find out who is behind the effort.
But Virginia activists want to establish a “right” to abortion in their state Constitution, the group said.
The amendment would read: “That an individual’s right to personal reproductive autonomy is central to the enjoyment of life and liberty and shall not be denied or infringed upon unless justified by a compelling interest of the Commonwealth and achieved by the least restrictive means.”
