Abortion regulations need more oversight not less

Any surgical procedure requires safety regulations to ensure the health of patients. Every center should be inspected every year, ensuring that all regulations are being followed. Hallways should be wide enough for a gurney to pass through and the doctor should have hospital privileges to a nearby hospital. Ultrasoun d's should be required and mental and physical follow up should also be required.
