Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women’s Health
 

I strongly support continuation, in perpetuity, of the Board of Health regulations on abortion-providing facilities.  Licensure and sanitation standards on such facilities are really a "no brainer" in my opinion.  Performing such intimately invasive procedures in facilities with no such regulatory requirements for quality of care puts women's health -- indeed, their very lives -- at risk.  Please, stay the course.  Keep abortion facility regulations in place!
