Highly Support Regulations
 

Abortion is a surgical procedure that can have very serious complications and it is in the interest of public health to regulate abortion facilities in the same way any hospital performing surgery is regulated.  Limiting these regulations simply to make abortion more available would show a reckless disregard for patient safety by the state.
