Abortions should not be more regulated than colonoscopies
 

To whom it may concern,

I have had both an abortion and a colonoscopy, and of the two, my colonoscopy was by far the more troublesome. My abortion did not require full anesthesia, which my colonoscopy did. My colonoscopy took place in a regular doctor's office, with regular-width hallways. Abortion clinics should not be held to a higher standard than other out-patient clinics, when abortions are safer procedures than those held to a lower standard.

 

All my best,

Elizabeth Miller
