This regulation is simply common sense
 

What possible grounds could there be to objecting to clean, sanitary, and safe buildings in which a surgical operation is being performed? 

The state has a duty to protect the health and safety of all its citizens; if certain abortion providers are unwilling to meet basic standards for safety and hygience, they should not be in business. 

For those who are concerned about the financial impact on sub-standard providers, there are undoubtedly individuals and organizations who can assist them with loans or donations.
