Virginia Medical Board Shoots Down Unnecessary Abortion Clinic Rules

questionall:

IN UNEXPECTED MOVE, VIRGINIA MEDICAL BOARD SHOOTS DOWN UNNECESSARY ABORTION CLINIC PROVISIONS | In a big victory for the pro-choice movement in Virginia, the Medical Board of the state has protected existing abortion clinics from a series of stringent regulations aimed at closing or debilitating the facilities. After the Virginia legislature voted that all abortion clinics needed to be certified doctor’s offices, the Virginia Department of Health releasedguidelines for clinics that included unnecessary regulations such as the size of janitors’ closets in abortion clinics. The Board of Health voted 7-4 to grandfather in any existing clinics so that they do not have to get up to code on these superfluous provisions.
