Revised Abortion Clinic Regulations Coming To Virginia
In Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell has revised abortion clinic regulations. Strict building standards have also been certified following a public comment period. The state Board of Health will provide the final vote on the regulations later this year. If passed the abortion clinics will need to meet the same strict building standards as new hospitals. Abortion Advocates fear that the new standards might put Virginia's 20 clinics out of business. Early on the existing clinics were exempted from the construction standards, but Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli stopped short of certification until the board included all facilities. The governor considers this a common sense approach to ensuring that these facilities are modern and safe. Those clinics still have well over a year to comply. The Former Virginia Health Commissioner resigned last year saying that her ability to fulfill her duties had been compromised by the development, enforcement and interpretation of the regulations outside her office.
