Please Strike Down TRAP
 

The proposed VA TRAP laws will severely limit women's access to not only abortion in Virginia, but to other women's health services as well. Our women's health clinics have a record of very safe care and subjecting them to standards higher than other offices who perform in-office procedures (simple biopsies, colonoscopy, simple surgeries) shows the bias in these regulations -- to shut down abortion clinics. Please do not let this happen. The women of Virginia need safe, affordable options for their healthcare, and if clinics are not accessible, women will find other, illegal and unsafe options when it comes to abortion.
