Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women's Health
 

 

I will begin by stating that I oppose abortion and know that any procedure intended to kill a human being is not health care. However, to reduce the abortion industry's health-risk fall-out on it's victimized patients, I am cognizant of a need to set standards for the operation of abortion clinics.   I feel that permanent abortion facility regulations will protect women's health.  As it is public knowledge, various abortion clinics have violated health and safety standards, thus proving that these facilities do not have the protection of women's health at heart.  Morever, one would make the conjecture that clinics, which exist, solely for the  purpose of killing human beings, would likely generalize their disrespect for life in the treatment of their patients, as well.  Consequently, women are placed at a higher risk for contracting disease when subjected to unsanitary conditions such as exposure to blood-spattered sheets, for just one example. Permanent regulations must be adopted to protect women in such slaughterhouses.
