Medically necessary, evidence-based regulations

As you review the TRAP restrictions on Virginia's abortion clinics, please defer to medical professionals who will recommend medically necessary, evidence-based regulations.  We need to furnish women with a variety of options for contraceptives and family planning that include reasonable access to abortion.  Please promote restrictions that have the objective of ensuring the health of women, not making it harder for those who seek an abortion to obtain one.
