Keep abortion clinics regulated
 

I believe abortion clinics should have the same procedures and requirements as hospitals because of the routine invasive procedures and surgeries that they perform.

Abortion minded people decry the old days where they say women died because of unsafe abortions. Now they decry regulations to ensure abortion clinics are safe. Inspections are showing quite a number of them are not. Self regulation is not working and we hear of more women dying.

For the safety of women's health, these regulations must be kept intact.
