Virginia Abortion Clinic Regulations Up For New Vote After Steps By AG and Gov
Virginia Abortion Clinic Regulations Up For New Vote After Steps By Attorney General, Governor
Posted: 09/12/2012 11:28 am Updated: 09/12/2012 12:16 pm

Under mounting pressure from Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell ® and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the Virginia Board of Health on Friday must consider for a second time a set of regulations that could shut down most abortion clinics in the state.

<..> Cuccinelli, an outspoken opponent of abortion rights, refused to certify the rules passed by the board, arguing that it had exceeded its authority in its decision to grandfather in existing clinics. The board now will have to take a second vote on the original regulations this Friday.

In the meantime, McDonnell appointed a new member to the Board of Health, Dr. John W. Seeds, vice chairman of the anti-abortion group OBGYNS for Life.

The American Civil Liberties Union and several women's health advocacy groups charge that McDonnell and Cuccinelli have misused their power in order to strong-arm the Board of Health into passing medically unnecessary regulations that restrict Virginia women's access to a legal abortion procedure. McDonnell and Cuccinelli maintain that they have acted within the scope of their responsibilities.

The rightwing never quits trying to take away women's rights.

Anti-Abortion State Rep. Has ‘Never Thought About’ Why A Woman Would Want An Abortion
By Tara Culp-Ressler on Sep 12, 2012 at 9:00 am

Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) outrageous comment that “legitimate rape” doesn’t often result in pregnancy is just one prominent example of radical anti-choice politicians’ lack of awareness about real issues that confront women. State Rep. Jim Buchy (R-OH) is just the latest anti-abortion lawmaker to reveal his inability to understand what’s at stake in the fight for women’s reproductive freedom.

People like this have no business dictating women's reproductive choice.
