Lawsuit Challenges Regulations on Abortion Clinics in Virginia


Lawsuit Challenges Regulations on Abortion Clinics in Virginia
NBC 29 News

A lawsuit has been filed against the McAuliffe administration for the way abortion clinic regulations were rolled back in Virginia.The Family Foundation of Virginia, an anti-abortion group, is funding the legal challenge.The foundation’s president, Victoria Cobb, says they are getting involved due to what she believes are procedural violations and a lack of government transparency.“They issued a document that stated that the vote had already occurred when they hadn't even held the meeting yet. Those kind of things isolate and sort of ice out the public,” Cobb said.Court documents accuse the Democratic governor’s administration and the Board of Health of going ahead with changes to abortion clinic safety standards when it was against basic code.The lawsuit was filed in Henrico County Circuit Court by attorney Dan Carrell, and pinpoints 22 accused violations of Virginia law.
