Support Regulations
 

I am in support of the Tempory Emergency Regulations that were passed last year and support permanent regulations.  As an RN I am very familiar with the yearly state inspections done at our medical facility. This is beneficial for us and our patients. The fact that so many health and safety violations were discovered at Virginia's abortions clinics while these regulations were in place during the past year, is proof enough that the regulations need to stay and be made even stronger. Many abortion clinics have abused their unregulated status far too long and for the safety of their patients, should adhere to the same standards that all other medical and dental facilities adhere to.
