Safety Standards for ALL Healthcare Facilities
 

 

If this state is serious about the health and safety of women who choose to have abortions, supporting the proposed legislation will offer at least the minimum level of compliance by abortion providers.  Why should abortion clinics be less accountable than other health facilities?

Framing support of the legislation as ideologically driven is as equally applicable to those who oppose it.  It is tiring to hear the rhetoric hurled in what should be an open and honest debate.
