Terry McAuliffe Vows to Keep Substandard Abortion Facilities Open

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe made a campaign promise yesterday to exempt existing abortion clinics from having to comply with state health and safety standards. Recently, a number of clinics in the state were closed after they failed to live up to state standards.

Last year, according to Women Speak Out, more than 80 violations were discovered inside Virginia abortion facilities last year. But that doesn't seem to stop McAuliffe from defending them. This clearly shows his concern is for the well being of the abortion industry and not women.

Here's what he said: "I can do what I talked about, issue a guidance opinion by March to keep the remaining health centers open. I can do that myself as Governor. That's why I said I'll do that by March to keep the remaining, uh, Norfolk is closed. Fairfax is closed, or closing, so there will be 18 left. Only one of those 18 actually meet the, the requirements so they'll all close if I don't do that. But I will issue what's called a guidance opinion by mid-March which will say that these regulations, I have, the General Assembly wasn't definitive with the Board of Health as to the rules, I can give a guidance opinion to the Board of Health to grandfather in those remaining clinics to keep them open. That's why this election is so important, and I will do that."



  1. Im done feigning surprise that the people claiming to protect women are really the ones waging the war on women. Meanwhile those who uncover the deplorable conditions are actively trying to protect women (although they are doing so under a guise as we all know the real goal is to protect women from abortion altogether).

    Imagine if a politician were to grant Pepsi a waiver to allow sewer water in their canned soda. We certainly wouldnt be saying its for the protection of the consumer. But these guys are doing exactly that. Sad part is, there are people demanding the sewer soda gets protected treatment...then complaining that were nut cases because we dont want sewer soda.

    Its a strange Orwellian world where those waging the war on women have convinced the women they are protecting them. And many women buy into that!
