McAuliffe Wants Review of Abortion Clinic Regulations

Governor Terry McAuliffe has taken executive action on several women’s health issues, including instructing the State Board of Health to review controversial new regulations of clinics who provide abortions. The regulations require that such clinics meet the same structural standards as hospitals.

Governor McAuliffe has also appointed five new members to the Board of Health, replacing one who stepped down and 4 whose terms expire in June. Sources on both sides of the issue estimate that 6 more members of the 15-person board would need to be replaced in order to overturn the regulations.
