When Woman's Choice opened, Jacob told the Charleston Gazette the move was needed because the building was bigger, but that he also thought the new location could be "beneficial" because abortion seekers would have to walk by.
Monday, Jacob said there's "a lot more" traffic heading into Woman's Choice at the new location. When asked if the increase in people going to Woman's Choice had anything to do with its location, Jacob said, "it's possible."
Women have "occasionally" gone into Woman's Choice seeking an abortion, Jacob said. When that happens, he said someone tells them it isn't an abortion clinic.
Right now Woman's Choice offers pregnancy tests but no medical procedures. There are three volunteers who work there. Although one is a nurse, Jacob said that person doesn't offer medical counseling.
Jacob said later in an emailed statement he had received Skinner's letter. He said Woman's Choice would answer within 30 days as Skinner requested.
Shortly after sending letters to the clinics, Morrisey announced he would seek comment from anyone about abortion regulations in the state.
The Family Policy Council of West Virginia, an evangelical nonprofit opposed to abortions, has repeatedly thanked Morrisey for his work. Its leader, attorney Jeremiah Dys, is representing a woman in a legal case against the Women's Health Center.
Dys recently announced the launch of the "Illuminate Campaign," what he and supporters call an effort to look at abortion clinics in the state. Last week the council sent a lengthy letter detailing its concerns, as a part of Morrisey's call for comments.
Monday, Dys said he was "grateful" Skinner was interested in the crisis centers.
"We hope the pregnancy care centers of West Virginia will carefully review his questions and respond respectfully within the time period he has set out," Dys said in a prepared statement. "And, we hope that he will join us as we continue working toward ensuring the health and safety of the women of this state."
Margaret Chapman Pomponio, leader of WV Free, said Dys and Morrisey's claim they are looking out for women's health is disingenuous. WV Free advocates for women's health issues, including access to abortions.
Pomponio said Monday she was aware of Skinner's letters.
"That irony is not lost on us," Pomponio said. "He's trying to make a point that perhaps the attorney general's time would be better spent focused on uncovering the deceptive practices of these centers rather than targeting real women's health providers."
She has repeatedly said the so-called crisis centers mislead women.
"They co-opt women in crisis situations with deceptive language and signs," Pomponio said. "The goal, it seems, is that a woman feels safe seeking reproductive health care there, when in actuality those providing the so-called service are trying to dissuade them (from an abortion)."
On behalf of WV Free, Pomponio recently sent her own letter to Morrisey questioning why he is focused so intently on the clinics.
She said Monday he is "obsessed" with abortions.
WV Free has scheduled a rally at the Capitol today to promote women's health and dispel what they consider to be lies from Dys and Morrisey. The noon event, called the "Stand With West Virginia Women" rally, will take place in the lower rotunda.
Friday was the last day to submit comments to Morrisey's office about abortions. Monday, Morrisey spokeswoman Beth Ryan said the comments wouldn't be discussed until they had been reviewed.
The office has never said how it will use the comments or if they would be made public.
