Members of the House of Delegates passed a bill that would ban a commonly used second-trimester abortion method.
Senate Bill 10 passed 86 to 13 in the House Monday.
This bill bans dilation and evacuation, or D&E, abortions. It allows those procedures to take place, however, in cases of medical emergencies. Some OBGYNs have testified before lawmakers that the bill takes away one of the safest options for women and interferes with the doctor-patient relationship.
