Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women's Health
I strongly support the current regulatons on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health. These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards.
I refuse to accept the premise that abortion is health care because it ends lives rather than healing them. However, the existence of the abortion industry under the guise of “health care” is a sad and tragic reality in our Commonwealth and our country. The current regulations are reasonable, common-sense measures to ensure that life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, and clear written policies and building guidelines are in place. Please maintain strong permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and safety of women.
The abortion industry has shown it is not able to police itself. It is foolish to allow this industry to go unregulated as it destroys human lives. These lives include the baby as well as the baby's mother. Other industries that do far less harm have far more regulations.
Thank you for your consideration.
