Clinic regulations
 

I am writing to comment on the BOH regulations related to reproductive health clinics that offer abortion services. I believe these regulations are medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome. They would restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options from across the state. It is my hope that the regulations will be amended to be based purely on medicine and science and not impede a woman or family's ability to access comprehensive medical care.
