Protect Women's Health, Regulate Clinics
 

I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health.  By insuring that these regulations are permanent, it's a move to ensure women's health is at least a little more protected.  Abortion doesn't help women, but if the state continues to offer such a procedure, they should certainly make sure that the clinics in Virginia don't end up like the clinic in Pennsylvania that Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran.

There aren't many industries that get to self-regulate their practices - why should the abortion industry be different!

These measure are reasonable to prevent further problems.
