Safety for All Women!

Protect all women! Procedures performed in abortion facilities should be safe for women. Women should understand that safety regulations are just that: regulations to protect us from harm especially in facilities that are in business solely to make money rather than ensure quality health treatment. These procedures are not unlike those performed in hospital outpatient departments where regulations are mandatory. 

This issue is Not a political one. It is a matter of protecting lives no matter what type of facility in which women are treated. I think women do not realize when they demand less regulation what they are actually asking for. Regulataors must protect women against any type of political verbiage. I have seen women leaving abortion facilities in a coma and in pain from an infection and being rushed to a hospital because regulations were not in place or not being utilized. Abortion facilities will not disappear with safety protections; they will just be safer. Please protect women against the manatra that less protection is good for their health.
