Senate Bill 924 is detrimental to the health of women in Virginia
 

Senate Bill 924, the "TRAP" bill, is a fundamentalist, reactionary ploy to take away choice from women in Virginia.  Knowledgable medical professionals have said that the requirements outlined in this bill are unnecessary.  These requirements will simply lead to grievous injury ane death for women who, having no ready access to centers for reproductive planning, almost certainly will find themselves back in a terrible pre-Roe vs.Wade situation, illegal abortions will be sought, and more women will die or else give birth to children they do not want and cannot take care of.   

Senate Bill 924 must not become the law of our state.  What appropriate nomenclature--TRAP!
