"Virginia Lists Anti-Abortion Centers Where Women Can Receive Required Ultrasounds"

Virginia’s new invasive law, which requires women to have an ultrasound and wait 24 hours before having an abortion went into effect on Monday. Along with the Republican-supported measure designed to deter women from having abortion procedures, Virginia has released a list of places a woman can go to get a free ultrasound, and the list is made up entirely of anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers. In fact, two of the centers listed are not even health clinics. Idaho put out a similar list before legislators tabled the ultrasound bill being considered in that state.
