Stop unnecessary regulation of women's services
 

Forcing women's health care centers to meet the same standards as certain types of hospitals has nothing to do with practicing good medicine or protecting patient safety.  As a registered nurse who spent years working in the area of women's health care, I am totally disheartened that a group of state legislators who know NOTHING about the medical or personal realities of women seeking care, are trying to control that care.  This needs to stop.
