RICHMOND, VA, September 13, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Terry McAuliffe has been caught on tape saying he will issue a directive to allow abortion clinics that do not meet state health standards to stay in business if he is elected governor of Virginia.
McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee who is now running for governor against pro-life stalwart Ken Cuccinelli, said he will take executive action to sidestep the requirements on behalf of subpar abortion facilities.
Reviewing the circumstances of abortion facilities in the Old Dominion, he said, “Norfolk is closed.Fairfax is closed, or closing, so there will be 18 [abortion facilities] left.”
“Only one of those 18 actually meet the requirements, so they’ll all close” without an assist from a friendly governor.
“I will issue what’s called a guidance opinion by mid-March ,” he said, “to grandfather in those remaining clinics to keep them open.”
“That’s why this election is so important, and I will do that.” he vowed.
