The Board of Health

As many of you probably know, the Board of Health voted to pass the Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers without the grandfather clause. This means that 20 abortion providers in Virginia will be forced to close or undergo costly renovations to abide by these structural requirements that classify them as hospitals.

Some organizations have already released statements condemning the Board for their actions including Progress Virginia.
