West Virginia's abortion ban goes into effect with governor's signature 20:42 West Virginia’s Republican governor Jim Justice has signed a recently passed abortion ban

into law, making it the latest state to crack down on the procedure after the supreme court greenlit bans when it overturned Roe v Wade last June. Today I signed

HB 302 - a bill that protects life. I said from the beginning that if WV legislators brought me a bill that protected life and included reasonable and logical exceptions I

would sign it, and that's what I did today. Read the bill ⬇️https://t.co/G7i9DTirSN— Governor Jim Justice (@WVGovernor) September 16, 2022 Related:

West Virginia passes sweeping abortion ban with few exceptions   20:26 Elsewhere on Thursday, the partisan venom went airborne, when senator Ted Cruz

encountered a supporter of Democrat Beto O’Rourke on a flight. The Texas senator’s camera-wielding foe, whose identity remains unclear, captured their encounter on video,

in which he challenged Cruz’s stance on gun control and asked him to name a victim of the May shooting in the town of Uvalde: Senator Cruz was on my flight, and I

asked him to name any of the Uvalde victims. He couldn’t. Texas deserves better than spineless hacks like this. Right the wrongs of 2018, and make @betoorourke our next
