|Action||Regulations for Licensure of Abortion Facilities|
|Comment Period||Ends 3/29/2013|
The Board must amend the regulations to grandfather in existing health centers. There are no legitimate medical purposes in singling out abortion providers. Extensive construction requirements have no relation to the safety of the services that women's health center provide. Regulating abortion differently than other procedures that are safely provided in non-hospital medical facilities is playing politics with women's health. These regulations are contrary to Gov. McDonnell's Regulatory Reform Initiative as well.
The Boards decision reeks of religous conservative's beliefs being imposed on all citizens violation our first amendment rights. We are headed back to stone age mentality.
