Virginia's busiest abortion provider has closed after struggling to comply with 2011 legislation that imposed hospital-like standards on abortion clinics.
"When clinics close, women have to travel farther," she explained. "And it's not just for abortion but also for cancer screening and birth control, which is especially hard for those who can't afford private doctors or take time off work to travel to a clinic."
Under the new health department regulations, "Clinics have a year to either move to a different location or to renovate, and many will have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars widening hallways, adding awnings or installing water fountains," said Alena Yarmosky, a spokeswoman for the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws.
