TRAP regulations
 
I am appalled at the backward regulation our government is putting on women's healthcare. It's being done under a veil of protection but in reality they are taking away women's access to safe, cost effective health care.  The high standard of care provided by women's health centers is proven by their impressive safety record. Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures. Overregulation will limit access to a wide range of preventive reproductive health care services provided by women's health clinics, including life-saving cancer screenings, family planning, and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment. 
This is a step backwards in women's rights!
