TRAP is necesary to protect women
 

As a pregnancy counselor, I have seen the damage done to women by facilities that give inadequate medical care and information.  Young women are particularly vulnerable.  Abortion facilities must have the same health standards as other medical providers.  Abortion is a life-long, life-changing (and of course life ending) procedure and women must be protected from greedy providers whose only interest is in recovering a fee.
