Herring Urges Board Of Health To Reject Cuccinelli’s Intimidation Tactics


    Leesburg – Democratic candidate for Attorney General State Senator Mark Herring (Loudoun & Fairfax) released the following statement today ahead of the Virginia State Board of Health’s meeting to reconsider proposed new regulations:

    “This episode with the Board of Health is just the latest example of Attorney General Cuccinelli substituting his own personal political views in place of sound legal judgment. Attorney General Cuccinelli has moved outside the scope of his legal authority in his attempt to substitute his extreme political ideology for the will of the Board, threatening women’s access to reproductive healthcare in the process.  

    I join with countless physicians across Virginia in urging the Board of Health to reject the Attorney General’s bullying and intimidation.”
