TRAP Laws
 

I am absolutely appalled by the TRAP Laws. These regulations are harmful to women, seek to restrict their personal freedom, and are completely partisan in nature. I am alarmed that the Virginia state government feel so entitled to control women's bodies that our legislators believe they have the authority to encroach on the personal liberties of Virginia women in such a direct, harmful way. These regulations are medically unnecessary, burdensome, and inappropriate. If our governmental officials were at all concerned with women's health, they would be able to see that these regulations will only harm women physically and psychologically. These regulations unfairly target low-income, uninsured, and minority women. However, the TRAP regulations are damaging for all women. TRAP directly infringes on my RIGHT to choice. TRAP directly obstructs my RIGHT to freedom and happiness. In case you have forgotten, Roe v. Wade did happen. Women's right to choose is a protected RIGHT in this country that prides itself on freedom and choice. It is my sincere hope that the Virginia State government will not put partisan and personal motives before the health of thousands of women. Repeal TRAP, save women's lives and health.
