Protect Women’s Health with Permanent Facility Regulations of Abortion Clinics
 

Please ensure the continued facility regulations of abortion facilities which are already in place.  Abortion providers must be regulated as hospitals and other clinics are in order to prevent tragedies like the recent one in Germantown, MD from happening.  Abortion is a tragic choice and we must do all we can to prevent further trauma and damage to the mother by ensuring that abortion facilities are held to the highest standards.  Leaving facilities regulation to abortion providers without any oversight will likely lead to poor conditions, unsanitary practices, and high risk practices.
