Women have the right to an abortion in a clinic without unnecessary building restrictions
 

Women have the right to an abortion in a medical clinic, such as in Planned Parenthood locations, for instance.

Also women and girls have the right to  Objective, Medical health oriented services without religious overtones, and from doctors and medical professsionals such as BIRTH CONTROL AND OTHER GYNECOLOGICAL SERVICES.

Your bill requiring unnecessary clinical hallways, sizes of rooms which you have as requirements for hospitals are unjustified in a PLANNED PARENTHOOD type clinic. You are using these hospital building requirements to formally shut down these Objective and Medical facilities in order to inhibit such services.

We have these medical rights. You must not infringe upon our rights.
