Virginia Votes to Regulate Abortion Clinics Like Hospitals; Most Clinics Will Close

Putting abortion providers out of work, that appears to be your average Republican's idea of a jobs program. With the country in serious decline, obsessing over women's wombs is how our Republicans spend their time. Gawd help us:

The Virginia General Assembly has agreed that abortion clinics should be regulated as hospitals instead of physician's offices, a move that antiabortion activists have sought for almost two decades, insisting that it would improve clinic safety.

Abortion rights advocates say it will make the state one of the most restrictive for abortions in the country and could force as many as 17 of the state's 21 abortion clinics to close.
