Women deserve the highest safety standards
 

Please vote to keep the recently enacted high standards for womens health and safety at abortion facilities. After all the terrible news surrounding Dr. Gosnell in PA, this would be the wrong time to compromise standards at abortion centers. Abortion is serious surgery and can involve young girls without the benefit of parental guidance. In view of this, Virginia has an obligation to require the highest standards of these clinics.
