Anti 'TRAP'
 

I think this issue should be a no-brainer - DO NOT enact the TRAP regulations.The proposed regulations will increase the financial hurdles to health care for patients, with no proven medical benefit to patients. Women need more access to affordable, high quality health care, not less. Please do not let politics decide what is rightly between an woman and her doctor. There are NO reasons to have hospital type regulations for clinics that provide women's health care (and yes, also abortions). The fact that other type of clinics are exempt from these regulations proves that you are tyring to go back 40 years and basically outlaw abortions.
