Make abortion clinic regulations mandatory
 

Please make health standards permanent to protect women from unregulated abortions that are no better than

back alley abortions.  The abortion indusdustry will cut corners to make money including using unsterilized equipment

untrained staff and filty rooms.  9 clinics were found in gross violation.  If there are no mandatory health standards

women will risk serious infections, and unrecognized complications of abortion.  Please protect women by

making health standards for abortion clinics permanant.
