SUPPORT TRAP TO PREVENT LEGAL BACK ALLEY ABORTIONS
 

It is critical that we have basic health standards in abortion clinics.  Otherwise we are allowing back alley

unsafe and unsanitary abortions.  The abortion industry must be made to meet basic health standards

as do all other medical facilities.  Why should abortion clinics not have to meet basic standards and be exempt from

basic health standards.  Why should women who choose abortion possible risk their own life in dirty clinics with

undertrained staff and unsterile equipment without a reasonable plan for complications.  We must make

TRAP permanent.  I would hope that we had less abortions but if we allow abortions the mother's life

should not be at risk because the abortion industry wants to save time and money.  As we see there were

many basic health care practices ignored at the abortion clinics even after regulations were suggested.

We will save the lives of many women with these healt regulations.
