Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell announced this morning during an interview that he will sign the Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers into law within the next 2 months. He is waiting for The Cooch to approve it first.
We find out in an article how McUltrasound believes the regulations will affect clinics. Those outcomes do not include forcing clinics to close.
” ‘I think that these new regulations are going to contribute to the expense, but I haven’t, at least from what I’ve been told by folks, really… don’t see that it’s going to amount to clinics really closing,’ he said. ‘It’s a cost issue.’ “
Yes. It is a cost issue. And many clinics simply don’t have the money to renovate their buildings.
