Abortion providers in West Virginia are required to distribute materials prepared by the state and/or conduct state-directed counseling. In this state, women must contact and/or visit an abortion provider and then wait 24 hours before obtaining an abortion. Patients under the age of 18 who are not emancipated or have not graduated from high school must notify one parent 24 hours before obtaining an abortion. Patients who are NOT able to notify a parent can proceed through a process known as "judicial bypass." For more information about judicial bypass in your state, contact our hotline at (800) 772-9100. Under certain circumstances, a patient under the age of 18 may notify a second physician.
