Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women’s Health
I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health. These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards. The current regulations are reasonable, common-sense measures to ensure that life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, and clear written policies and building guidelines are in place. In addition, the abortion industry has not shown that it is capable of policing itself with numerous health and safety violations recorded by health inspectors. Please maintain strong permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and safety of women.
