Enforce Health and Safety Requirements in Abortion Centers
 

Please enforce the same health and safety standards in abortion centers in Virginia as are required in hospitals, doctors' offices, and other healthcare facilities.  Failure to support such standards sanctions abortion providers as legalized "back alley" operations.  It was for this very purpose of closing down the unsafe "back alley" providers that abortion was legalized in our country.  No one who is genuinely concerned about the health and safety of women could oppose enforcement of health, safety, and sanitation requirements in these abortion facilities.
