TRAP Regulations
 

These and similar regulations will only lead to less prenatal care and more back-alley abortions. Do you think people are going to abstain from sex or increase their use of contraception just because there's a dearth of reproductive-health centers in the state? The answer is a definite no. Regulations like these don't enhance public health; on the contrary they damage it and in the long run cost us more, both economically and socially.
