Speaking out AGAINST TRAP
 

There are many reasons why I oppose TRAP:

To whom it may concern:

I am taking the time today to write to you to express my concerns about the continued support and safety of womens health. These TRAP regulations are a direct threat to womens health; the exact opposite of what we want and need. The ability of women, young and old, to have access to preventative health care needs to be protected. The reugulations threaten the continued availability of safe, legal reproductive health care at various locations throughout the state. The high standard of care provided by womens health centers throughout the commonwealth are unfairly under attact, when they have proven themselves by their impressive safety records. Overregulation will harshly limit access to the full spectrum of reproductive health care servies, including life saving cancer screenings, family planning, and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment. Unrelated and extensive additional requirements for clinic buildings are rediculous and fabricated by politicians to further harm women. We need to return to small government policies and keep politicians and theologians out of citizens private parts.
