Senate Bill 924/ Women's Health Care/ Abortion Services
 

 

Virginia Board of Health

The regulations threaten the continued availability of safe, legal, first-trimester abortion and reproductive health care in multiple locations through-out the state (Virginia).

This overregulation will limit access to a wide range of preventive reproductive health care services provided by women's health clinics, including life-saving cancer screenings, family planning, and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment.

Anyone with money can get access to any services they want whether they are legal or not legal.  What these regulations do is deprive access to essential health care services to marginalized, young, low-income, uninsured women by decreasing their health care options.

How does the 'State' justify forcing poor people to have children they don't want, for whatever reason, while slashing social safety net, education and other social programs???  Adoption Mills and Private Prison Lobbists?
