A women's health care clinic in Fairfax that performed more abortions than any other location in the state of Virginia has closed.
The Washington Post reports that NOVA Women's Healthcare had operated in an office building in Fairfax since 2006, and it is not clear if it will reopen elsewhere.
The clinic would have likely needed to upgrade or move when Virginia changed regulations to require that abortion providers have hospital-grade facilities.
Zoning administrator Michelle Coleman says the clinic's application to retrofit another space was denied because officials decided parking at the building was inadequate.
The Fairfax City Council heard of the clinic's attempt to relocate and amended its zoning ordinance to require that all medical care facilities obtain a special-use permit and council approval.
