Regarding TRAP regulations
 

There is nothing about an abortion that makes it different from any other in-office procedure performed by medical professionals. Yet women's clinics have been singled out for discriminatory treatment.

TRAP regulations have absolutely nothing to do with protecting women’s health.

Instead, these onerous regulations are designed to force the majority of women’s health centers in Virginia to close, and prevent Virginia women from exercising their constitutional right to safe, legal, abortion.
