Va. Senate Committee Votes Down Abortion-rights Bills

Posted: Jan 22, 2018 7:54 AM Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Republican-led Virginia Senate committee has voted down bills aimed at increasing access to abortion services.

The committee voted along party lines last week against legislation pushed by abortion-rights advocates.

One bill was related to abortion clinic regulations and another would have removed the requirement that rape victims file a police report before receiving an abortion funded by the state.

The committee also rejected a bill that would have eliminated a waiting period before an abortion.
