Women’s Health Group Trial

Trial has begun in a lawsuit filed by women's health group looking to overturn recent restrictions on abortion providers in Virginia. This particular lawsuit challenges four Virginia laws, including a physician only law that bars nurse practioners and physician's assistants from performing first trimester abortions. Another law requires women wanting an abortion to undergo an ultrasound at least 24 hours before it's performed. The case will be decided by a judge and not a jury.
