Virginia Attorney General Wrong on Law Governing Women’s Health Center Rules

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: (212) 549-2666; media@aclu.org ACLU of Virginia urges the Board of Health to continue to oppose unnecessary and burdensome regulations that place politics above women’s health and safety. Richmond, VA — The Office of the Attorney General yesterday refused to certify new regulations of women’s health centers, which had been approved last month by the state Board of Health. The AG’s office reasons that the Board exceeded its authority by adopting an amendment that allows existing women’s health care centers to be “grandfathered in,” rather than subjected to building requirements meant for the construction of new facilities.
