Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect 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. Health inspectors documented multiple  health and safety violattions in the facilities.  Most had to submit correction plans in order to receive provisional licensure. Clearly the abortion industry cannot be relied upon to self regulate and promote standards of cleanliness and safety in their facilities..
