SUPPORT REGULATIONS - Keep Women Safe
 

I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health.  These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest of standards.

Every facility where surgical procedures take place should be held to the highest standard. Why is it that we are open to increasing regulations at Veterninary offices, but so against at abortion clinics? "Pro-Women" groups out there should be the first to support the protection and safety of women, not the last. What is more important - the health and safety of a patient, or an unsanitary abortion clinic not equipped to handle medical emergencies?

SUPPORT the federal regulations - without them millions of women are in danger.
