pro choice
 

Please don't pretend to protect women by changing clinic regulations.  I have lived before roe-v-wade, women still had abortions but they were not safe. Woman will die if they don't have access to safe abortions . Making it difficult will not stop them, It will  only make a sad situation worse.Changing the size of rooms  and corridors will not help. Before there were safe clinics, I had to take two friends to the hospital  to repair the damage that was done by some one trying to help. .I don't believe having an ultra sound would have changed their minds. They  had tried every way they could think of not to resort to an abortion,but had no choice.

     Please  think about your mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and all the women you know that might some day be faced with having to make this choice.Please don't make it more difficult for them.

     Sincerly,      Barbara J Miller
