The center denies any wrongdoing.
The center is the larger of the state's two women's health clinics that perform elective abortions. Dys' public funding figures are in reference to the center's budget.
"We fund one-third of the abortion clinic's budget on the West Side of Charleston. And that comes with some strings," Dys said. "One of those strings needs to be: We need to look over your shoulder once and a while ... to make sure, if you had to you could turn a gurney around in a hallway, have a wheel chair available..."
Dys said he got the information from 990 forms, documents all nonprofits are required to file with the Internal Revenue Service.
The documents are readily available at Guidestar.org. From 2009 to 2011, "government grants" never made up more than 16 percent of the center's total revenue, according to the tax documents the center filed with the Internal Revenue Service.
The bulk of the center's funding comes from patient services, according to the documents.
Imposing increased restrictions on clinics that perform abortions don't make women safer, argues Pam Van Horn, director of public affairs for the state chapter of Planned Parenthood. The national organization provides abortion services in other states, and sent out a press release late Monday opposing the policy council's announcement.
"West Virginians know it is important that a woman make her own personal, private decisions about her health and medical care," Van Horn said.
"A woman who has made such a deeply personal decision certainly doesn't need the further worry that a politician can just start meddling in her private medical decisions whenever he chooses."
Planned Parenthood is the latest organization to oppose efforts by state officials to question regulations of abortion clinics. West Virginia Free and the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union blasted Attorney General Patrick Morrisey when he announced his decision to review the procedures in the state.
Morrisey made the announcement after the lawsuit alleging wrongdoing at the center, also citing the crimes committed by Dr. Kermit Gosnell at an abortion clinic in Pennsylvania.
Since then Morrisey sent letters to the center and the Kanawha Surgicenter -- the other clinic that provides elective abortions -- requesting information about their practices. Neither clinic was required to respond, but both did. Their responses were limited, but said they understand and abide by the law.
Now Morrisey is accepting public comment on the matter.
Dys, lawmakers and other supporters at the announcement Monday praised Morrisey's action. Soliciting comments is also part of the policy council's campaign, according to the group's news release for the event.
