Proposed Regulations on Women's Health Centers
 

I am deeply concerned with the restrictions about to be placed on women's access to reproductive and health care. It is unacceptable that these restrictions will potentially close vital health centers for all the women of Virginia. Women depend on these organizations to provide health care that they can't receive anywhere else. The regulations will increase the financial hurdles to health care for patients.

Extensive, burdensome requirements for clinic buildings that are unrelated to the services health centers provide and have no proven medical benefit will reduce or eliminate patient access to health care.

Women need more access to affordable, high quality health care, not less.
