Hearings On Virginia's Abortion Clinic Regulation Continues

Play associated audio

More than two dozen people testified at the latest in a series of public hearings on Thursday regarding Virginia's new abortion clinic regulations, reports the Associated Press.

The State Board of Health held yesterday's hearing, and another is set for Tuesday in Alexandria.

Former state Health Commissioner Karen Remley testified at the hearing. She resigned in October over the regulations, which are drawing the ire of abortion-rights supporters by requiring existing clinics to meet the same strict building standards as newly constructed hospitals.

Critics say those standards could force most of the state's 20 existing clinics to close.

A final vote on the regulations is set for later this year.
