Easy. In Virginia, first Governor Bob McDonnell signs a law that says abortion clinics will be subject to the same regulations as hospitals. (Not outpatient clinics that do things like plastic surgery or oral surgery, mind you, just abortion clinics.)
Then you pass a bunch of regulations for new hospital
construction (like minimum hallway widths and specific ventilation systems),
and remove the clause that exempts existing hospitals.
Voila! All 20 abortion providers in Virginia will have to
make costly renovations, endangering their ability to continue operating.
The Virginia Board of Health didn’t want to do it. When they
passed the regulations in June, they grandfathered in the existing clinics. But
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli threatened the Board with legal and financial
consequences if they failed to remove the exemption, and for good measure,
Governor McDonnell appointed a new Board member – Dr. John Seeds, vice chairman
of the anti-abortion group OBGYNS for Life. Lo and behold, they got what they
