Cuccinelli on regulating abortions

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's new talk about the state's authority to regulate abortion clinics.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says they can be regulated just like outpatient surgery centers, just as long as the state doesn't undermine court decisions protecting a woman's legal right to abortions.

He offered his opinion at the request of two state lawmakers.
