GOOD NEWS FOR REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM!
(Recap from December)
On December 4th, the Virginia Board of Health voted to move forward with amending the state’s targeted regulations on abortion providers (TRAP)!
This doesn’t repeal TRAP, but it gives us the opportunity to do so.
The 13-2 decision comes after years of fighting dangerous and medically-unnecessary restrictions. This crucial vote means we get another shot to ensure that abortion providers are not forced to comply with regulations that were specifically designed with the intention of being impossible to meet — so that all but 4 of Virginia’s 18 abortion providing clinics would have to close.
These regulations have been designed to restrict, and even end women’s access to abortion and her right to choice.
We still have a long way to go but we now have the opportunity and are making lives better for women in Virginia! This is because of you!
