The Virginia legislature passed a law on February 24 that requires all abortion clinics to meet the same standards as hospitals. Opponents of the bill are saying this will lead to the closure of 17 of the state’s 21 abortions clinics.
Governor Bob McDonnell supports the measure.
Supporters of the bill say it’s not about banning abortions, but about caring for women in a medically safe environment.
