Thanks to legislation passed by anti-choice lawmakers and supported by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia is implementing burdensome and medically unnecessary Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers (TRAP). The Virginia Board of Health took a courageous stand to amend the regulations to allow women's health clinics to remain open.
Ken Cuccinelli is trying to veto the Board of Health and shut down women's health clinics, limiting the continued availability of safe, legal, first-trimester abortion throughout the state.
Virginia's women's health centers provide vital health care services like STD screenings, cancer screenings and family planning services, in addition to providing legal and safe abortions. Shutting down these clinics would restrict access to essential services, particularly for young, low-income, uninsured, and minority women.
Tell the Board of Health to stand up to Ken Cuccinelli's bullying and protect women's health centers and women's access to comprehensive health care services.
