Regulation for clinics offering abortion
 

I strongly recommend that clinics offering abortion be held to the same standards as any other medical clinic in the state of Virginia.   As a point of fact, these same clinics also offer many other services include all types of feminine examinations, physical examinations prior to obtaining birth control, D&Cs for medical solutions to problems other than abortions, etc.  These procedures are routinely performed by bona fide doctors in medical facilities across the state, and I fail to see why clinics offering abortion feel they are exempt.  A medical procedure is a medical procedure, and the highest standards must be applied across the board.

 

Thank you for listening.
