TRAP regulations harm women
 

Dear Board of Health,  

Physicians are taught:  do no harm.  When women's reproductive health is singled out to control access to abortion you are harming women.  These regulations are blatantly the imposition of religious views on the practice of medicine and they have no place in a democratic, pluralistic society.   You have become the enabler, the handmaiden to theorcracy and a rubber stamp for trampling women's constitutional right to an abortion.

You have the chance to do the right thing.  If you are guided by principle of do no harm, you will reject these regulations.

In history and today, all it takes is a few people doing the right thing to make a difference.  Your time is now.

Sincerely,

Suzanne J. Keller
