Restricting Access for Provider Exchange
 

I know from personal experience that determining whether to terminate a pregnancy is a heart-wrenching decision not entered into lightly.  But once that decision is made and since abortion is legal, a woman has the right to access the best medical attention possible.  Eliminating abortion access from the provider exchange negates that right and risks the lives of all Virginia women.

Please do not support this politically-motivated regulation which bypasses and corrupts what should be a scientific and evidence-based medical process and decision.  Abortion should be kept safe for all women, not just those who can afford private insurance.

Thank you for your consideration to this important issue.
