Make Permanent the Reasonable, Common Sense Measures to Protect Women at Abortion Facilities
 

I strongly support, for the sake of women, the current regulations on abortion centers that the Board of Health approved overwhelmingly. These regulations should be made permanent with the strongest standards. Although I believe that women deserve better than abortion, and that abortion ends one life and often scars another, I acknowledge the sad reality that abortion exists under the guise of "health care." The abortion industry and its supporters are missing the point of these common-sense measures: they claim they are in the business of women's health, yet they oppose regulations to ensure life-saving equipment is available, facilities are clean enough to prevent infection, and clear-written policies are in place? This is not logical. and makes me question whether they  care more for women's health or making a profit.  Please maintain strong permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and safety of women.
