Last June, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, struck down the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion across the country, and sent the issue back to the states. Just three months later, the West Virginia Legislature passed a law prohibiting abortions, except in very limited circumstances.

But that was not the end of the story.
