Reducing access to women's health care
 

Please do not pass Virginia TRAP regulations. Women are already having a hard time accessing quality care and do not need more hurdles to affordable care.  Many health centers like Planned Parenthood centers provide necessary services that women without health insurance cannot afford to get elsewhere.  Many prescriptions are not affordable without healthcare except through the medical centers that would be harmed by enacting these regulations. These regulations would disenfranchise some of the hardest-working women in America.
