TRAP regulations
 

Please do not approve these new TRAP regulations.  It will impose undue burdens on women seeking health care.  The clinics that will be affected currently provide a wide range of health services to women, including screening for breast, uterine and cervical cancers, as well as important family planning services.  With TRAP regulations that unfairly target family planning and women's health centers, but not other kinds of health services centers such as those for skin care or plastic surgery, you are unfairly potentially eliminating these critical, life-saving services for women.  Now is the time to demonstrate that you care for women in our state.  Thank you.
