Virginia passes legislation permitting non-physicians to perform abortions
February 26, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: If signed by the governor, the legislation would end “requirements such as ambulatory surgical center standards for abortion facilities, a 24-hour waiting period, delivery of informed consent materials, and a transabdominal ultrasound before an abortion. The bill would also [permit] non-physicians such as physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, and certified-nurse midwives, to commit abortions.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
