TRAP Regulations
 

Please do not close women's health centers. Virginia's women of all ages need them, and women of childbearing age need to know that they can go there for safe and legal abortion if and when hey need that procedure.

Besides this truth, the proposed TRAP regulation are as unfair and discriminatory as they are cruel. 

Why are you not also considering closing Virginia's birthing centers? Those I've seen in Alexandria don't come close to meeting the requirements you're proposing for the health centers. 

Virginia is already a very conservative state, but do you want to make us as backward as Arkansas in women's healthcare?

Thank you for your consideration.
