Pro-choice advocates in Virginia are celebrating today —the State Board of Health has voted to remove targeted regulations on abortion clinics.
In an 8 hour meeting today the board worked its way through dozens of amendments to regulations affecting clinics. In the end, they decided to roll back building codes and other restrictions that had been approved by former Governor Bob McDonnell 5 years ago. Since being passed, 7 clinics throughout the state have closed down. Mallory Noe-Payne has details.
