Repeal of Forced Sterilization Laws

Delegate Fleischauer was proud to be a sponsor of HB 2463, which removed forced sterilizations from WV state law in 2013. West Virginia, like most other states, had a law which provided a procedure to take away the right to become parents of citizens who were deemed mentally unfit. Forced sterilization laws are now considered crimes against humanity.
