Two Abortion Clinics Want Waivers from Building Regulations

Two abortion clinics are seeking waivers to strict new building regulations, which require such clinics meet the same structural standards as full service hospitals. The State Board of Health is currently reviewing the regulations to determine whether a repeal or amendment are appropriate. The review was ordered by Governor McAuliffe, who has said he will be a brick wall against efforts to restrict women’s access to health care. Victoria Cobb, President of the Virginia Family Foundation supports the regulations. Larry Roberts represents the Falls Church Health Care Center who is suing the Board of Health to have the regulations overturned. The board will be hearing public comment between June 16th and mid July. They are expected to complete their review by October.
