Planned Parenthood and other clinics for women in Virginia
 

I strongly object to the current legislation that will effectively close most of the clinics for women in Virginia.  These requirements as to corridor size, bathrooms, etc.  are clearly artificial devices to halt abortion provision in the state.  However, abortions are legal, and all the other services that these clinics provfide will be unavailable to poorer women with few resources.  It is a crude ploy to limit health services to women and should not be tolerated.
