Breaking: Statement on draft abortion regulations

Today reminds us just how far we still have to go for women’s equality in the United States.

While we celebrate Women’s Equality Day, women’s equal access to comprehensive health care is in danger.

Late this afternoon, the Virginia Department of Health issued a draft of new regulations on women’s health centers in Virginia.

Be sure to read the Virginia Coalition to Protect Women’s Health’s press release with first reactions to the potentially devastating regulations.

And stay tuned for more updates early next week.

Stay safe this weekend!

    As has been noted so many times, when safe abortion is unavailable, women die. Now, thanks to Governor McDonnell, among many others, women will die in Virginia. Their stories must not be forgotten. Someone needs to document the human damage these new regulations cause. Ideas on how to do this effectively? Anyone? This is a disaster of truly unimaginable proportions.
