Stand Strong for Virginia Women
Earlier this summer, the Virginia Board of Health voted to amend a key provision of the new regulations for women's health centers that provide five or more first-trimester abortions per year. The amendment "grandfathers in" existing women’s health care centers rather than subjecting them to onerous and unnecessary forced building requirements meant only for new construction. The amendment allows these centers to continue to provide safe, legal first-trimester abortion care and other health care services to their communities.
On Friday, September 14, the Board must vote again on this critical provision because the Attorney General refused to certify the new rules approved by the Board. The Attorney General, who has continually put politics over women's health, does not have veto power over the Board’s decisions.
