TRAP Regulations Reach Too Far
 

Department of Health Officials,

Do not approve these TRAP regulations. They're onerous and burdensome on women's health clinics. 

As a woman living in Virginia it seems that I'm seeming more and more regulatory measures aimed at restricting the services provided by women's health centers, including those that provide abortions. To those regulators attempting to push these measures through that would close these reproductive health clinics, STOP.

I don't want the myrad of money that I pay this state to go to these bullies that call themselves lawmakers. I'm not paying taxes to this state, just so these regulators can just go push their personal agendas and deny women reproductive health care by enacting reulations like TRAP. As a Virginia woman I WANT this state to consider the health needs and personal choices of ALL its citizens and stop bullying the health centers that take care of us.
