Abortion is already the safest medical procedure.
According to the Center for Disease Control abortion is one of the safest medical procedure in the United States. According to my malpractice insurance educational materials, there are several procedures performed in out patient settings that are not ambulatory surgery centers. These regulations that are under consideration are not going to make abortion any safer which is already very safe. If you look at complication statistics of all kinds of outpatient surgery you will see that abortion is safe. What the Commonwealth of Virginia is contemplating is not about the health of women but about the anti-abortion sentiments of legislators. Please stand for women's health and don't let politics run medicine.
