abortion facility regulations should be made permanent for women's health
 

I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health.  These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards.

The abortion providers performed highly dangerous back street abortions before 1973. After Roe v Wade, they moved to Main St with no further safeguards. They are in business to make money and cannot be trusted to regulate themselves.
