While my state Senate was busy voting to approve of same-sex marriage, the folks across the river in Virginia resolved a budget dispute, and in the process passed a rather significant measure:

But the session ended with a dramatic fight over the emotional issue of abortion rights, as Republicans maneuvered the Senate into an unwanted late vote on a bill that requires abortion clinics to be regulated as hospitals.

Democrats were unable to stop two of their conservative members from voting with all 18 Republicans to approve the bill, handing antiabortion activists a victory they had sought for two decades. The move, abortion providers said, could force some clinics to close if the new regulations prove too costly.

“Incredibly significant,” House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said of the abortion measure, which he supported.

“A terrible tragedy,” countered Sen. R. Edward Houck (D-Spotsylvania), who voted against it.

I’m going to love to see the pro-aborts fight this one.  Planned Parenthood loves to tout all of the marvelous things it does aside from killing unborn children, as this ad linked to at Creative Minority Report indicates.  Gee, it almost sounds like they’re providing an array of services also provided at . . . hospitals.
