TRAP laws
 

I call on the Board of Health to protect women's access to reproductive health care and not approve TRAP laws which are unnecessary and burdensome and could force some women's health centers to close.  These extensive, burdensome requirements for clinic buildings are unrelated to the services that women's health centers provide and threaten the continued availability of safe, legal first-trimester abortion and preventative reproductive health care, including cancer screening, family planning and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, in multiple locations throughout Virginia. It is my hope that the regulations will be amended to be based purely on medicine and science.
