Do Not Close Women's Health Centers
 

The proposed regulations for abortion providers are indeed "onerous and unnecessary". These new regulations would force the majority of women’s health centers in Virginia to close their doors.  Many Virginia women will have their personal health choices intruded upon and in many cases denied. Any state-required regulation should be based on medicine, not politics! The majority of women in the state of Virginia will oppose these regulations as an unecessary intrusion into a woman's personal health decisions. And speaking of politics, any elected official who supports this action will do so at their own political risk. You haven't taken away our right to vote!
