Richmond, VA - Virginia's Board of Health members are going to be hearing a lot of criticism Thursday about the new abortion clinic regulations.
A group called "OpposeTRAP" is planning to bombard them with phone calls, emails and even personal visits. TRAP stands for Targeted Regulations on Abortion Providers.
Last year, the General Assembly passed legislation last year that required most clinics to meet the same strict building standards as new hospitals.
License applications show that 20 of 23 clinics affected by the regulations already comply or plan changes to meet the requirements.
