Requiring clinics that provide abortion services to be sterile, with access for emergent removal when it becomes necessary, only makes sense.  

Recent news stories reveal that the "back alley abortion" is prevalent today...it's happening in sordid, stained, profiteering chambers, and pro-choice advocates are the ones screaming to protect the procedure from the very regulations that can save a woman's life.
