Pro-choice politician is “heartsick” over law that would make abortion safer

Pro-choice  politician, Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple, D-Arlington, on a bill passed that would regulate abortion clinics:

“It is purely discriminatory. It makes me heartsick.”

Virginia passed legislation that would require clinics that provide first-trimester abortions to meet the same standards as other surgical facilities. The requirements could include anything from expensive structural changes like widening hallways (to allow stretchers to pass through) to increased training and mandatory medical equipment the clinics currently don’t have.
