Washington Post Editorial on Virginia’s New Abortion Regulations

The Washington Post editorial: Virginia's abortion end run: Image1 


IT’S ALREADY HARD to get an abortion in Virginia, and it’s about to get much harder.


The reason is a new set of regulations — absurdly onerous and utterly unnecessary — pushed by conservative ideologues in Richmond and adopted by the state Board of Health, which is dominated by appointees of Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R). The regulations, which go into effect Jan. 1, are likely to result in the closure of many or most of Virginia’s 23 abortion clinics, which accounted for all but a few hundred of the 26,000 procedures performed in the state last year. . . .
