Women’s Health And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, with the state’s abortion ban clarified and solidified in state code by recent legislation, our Appalachia Health News Reporter Emily Rice talks with Sen. Patricia Rucker, R-Jefferson, and Del. Ric Griffith, D-Wayne, about women’s and maternal health in West Virginia.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from singer, songwriter and producer Maia Sharp. We listen to her performance of “Whatever We Are.” It’s a lament that appears originally on her recent album “Mercy Rising.”
