Earlier this year, Virginia enacted tougher regulations on abortion clinics to protect women's safety and to prevent horrors like the Pennsylvania Gosnell case. Following the regulations Virginia's largest Abortion clinic, the site of at least two patient deaths, closed in Fairfax.
According to The Washington Times:
Democrat Terry McAuliffe is telling supporters that as Virginia governor he would issue a “guidance opinion” that would exempt existing abortion clinics from complying with strict new health and safety standards. The only problem: State officials say there is no such thing as a guidance opinion and that governors have no such formal authority.
It's becoming increasingly clear that McAuliffe doesn't understand the workings of the Governor's office and Virginia state government.
Perhaps is he planning, as Brian Kirwin suggests at Bearing Drift to Use the Force.
