Tell Ken Cuccinelli: Stop Trying to Shut Down Abortion Providers

This petition had 6,231 supporters

Two years ago, Cuccinelli issued a legal opinion that's forcing the Board of Health to make abortion providers comply with hospital regulations. They waited as long as they could, but today the Board of Health has to make their ruling.

And unless Cuccinelli backs off, they have no choice — they'll have to enact the new regulations and possibly shut down abortion clinics.

Physicians across the Commonwealth have come out against these regulations, which involve things like the width of hallways and heating and ventilation systems, are medically unnecessary. Doctors say these restrictions do nothing to protect women’s health.

This isn't an isolated incident. Throughout his career Cuccinelli has made countless attempts to restrict women's health access.

Add your name and tell Ken Cuccinelli: Let women make their own health care decisions with their doctors, and without government interference.
