Do not limit access to health care
 

The clinics that TRAP is affecting provide many other important health care services to thousands of women in the state. By imposing TRAP regulations on these clinics, many will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars just to stay open. Money that could be spent on providing better health care to Virginians and/or education programs. Others will close forcing people to find new health care providers and making life more difficult. 

Abortion is one service that these clinics provide but by imposing TRAP regulations, you are limiting access to the other great services provided to residents in this state.
