Virginia Congress Considers D&X Ban, “Informed Consent” Law

The Virginia House Courts of Justice committee approved a ban on D&X abortions and a law that would require women to wait 24 hours before having an abortion. Senators have given preliminary approval to a D&X bill, and are expected to debate on the “informed consent” bill that would require abortion providers to give women information about abortion and alternatives by telephone or in person at least 24 hours prior to the procedure.
