CLEAN CLINICS & SAFETY REGULATIONS MAKE SENSE
 

It only makes sense that ALL CLINICS IN VIRGINIA SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO HAVE BASIC SAFETY AND HEALTH REGULATIONS.  Let's insist on the protection of  women--let's REALLY care about women by making the temporary regulations permanent.  Ensure life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, clear written policies are in place.  Those in charge of abortion clinics have not been properly monitoring the safety and sanitary conditions of the clinics as evidenced by the findings of the state inspectors.   PRO-WOMAN?  THEN, SUPPORT REGULATIONS OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVED BY THE BOARD OF HEALTH.  I do not support abortion, but it only makes sense that EVERY clinic in Virginia must have basic safety and health regulations.
