AG’s office certifies Va. abortion clinic regulations

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s office certified new abortion clinic regulations Wednesday approved by the State Board of Health in mid-September.

The regulations require the state’s existing abortion clinics to be regulated like new hospitals.

The board faced scrutiny from pro-choice advocates, who feel the strict regulations would put existing clinics out of business.

The governor must now approve the measure, and then a 60-day comment period will begin before the regulations go back to the board of health for final consideration.
