In response to the Virginia Board of Health's vote today on regulations for health care facilities, Tim Kaine released the following statement:
"These unnecessary regulations are a very clear attempt to infringe upon women's constitutionally protected right to make their own health care decisions. The continued focus on limiting women's access to health care is unacceptable. Our country is already too divided and our economic recovery is still not as strong as it needs to be. Our leaders should focus on growing the economy, fixing the budget and finding common ground instead of making decisions that women should be able to make for themselves. These divisive issues are wrong for Virginia, they're wrong for women, and they're bad for business."
