Reproductive Rights in Va
 

As a woman in Virginia, a mother in Virginia and a citizen of the United States, it is the right of all women to seek out a termination of pregnancy if we feel it is necessary for us to do so. We have that right through Roe V. Wade. By making centers jump through hoops, by making low income women have even less opportunity to access, you are infringing on our rights! If this was about your second amendment rights, there wouldn't even be an argument. Women were given this right and as a state, I find this appalling! We need good doctors, we need safe procedures....not bigger hallways, not larger rooms! This issue needs to be given from a health and wellness perspective, not politics and not religious either! This isn't about votes! This is about real people, real issues and really hard decisions!
