Women's health center regulations
 

Please do not put into effect the new restrictive regulations for women's health facilities.  These regulations are medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome. They would restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options.

Please consider amending the regulations to be based purely on medicine and science.  They should not impede women's access to essential health care.

Thank you.
