OPPOSE TRAP
 

TRAP is not interested in making healthcare safe.  The real goal is to restrict women's access to medical services in order to eliminate abortions.  A woman's reproductive choices are just that: her choices.  Regulations relating to the layout of a building are a smokescreen.  If TRAP passes, you will restrict access to essential healthcare services for the women of Virginia.  You will further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured, and minority women by decreasing their health care options.  You will have blood on your hands by forcing women into back-alley situations.  If the purpose of TRAP was TRULY to increase patient safety, then you would understand that by passing it, you are doing the exact opposite.  Protect women.  Oppose TRAP.
