TRAP Regulations Deny Women Access to Comprehensive Healthcare
 

To Whom It May Concern: 

The Targeted Regulations Against Abortion Providers, or TRAP, laws, are set to force the closer of women's health clinics statewide, effectively taking away vital heatlh services that women receive each day. Women's health clinics provide services ranging from reproductive care to screening for breast and ovarian cancers. By forcing the closer of these clinics, the Department of Health is putting politics ahead of the health and safety of the women of Virginia. 

Sincerely,

Emily Donaldson
