- The Board of Health must completely repeal and rewrite the current regulations of women’s health centers to protect women’s health and preserve access to comprehensive reproductive care.
- All health professions should be regulated, but these politically motivated restrictions aren’t necessary for patients’ safety. Instead, these restrictions endanger women’s health.
- Current regulations of Virginia women’s health centers are about politics, not medicine.
- Doctors, health care professionals, and a majority of Virginians oppose these regulations.
- If the regulations are not repealed and rewritten, tens of thousands of Virginia women and families will lose access to critical medical care.
Thank you for taking action for the health and safety of Virginia women.

In May, Gov. McAuliffe directed the Virginia Board of Health to conduct a review of the abortion clinic regulations designed by former Atty General Ken Cuccinelli and enforced by former Gov. McDonnell. Currently, the Virginia Dept. of Health is accepting public comments on whether to amend, repeal and rewrite, or uphold the regulations in their current form.
