Onerous Regulations for Abortion in the Commonwealth of Virginia

All women in the Commonwealth of Virginia should be free of onerous regulations that deny them the freedom of their own bodies.  Abortion is not something that a woman would choose but of necessity, economic hardship and a host of other considerations, they should be able to secure services without regulations that deny them their dignity and spare them from long rides to adequate facilities. The idea that women should adhere to regulations that continue to thwart what is a painful decision robs women of time elements as well. Requiring regulations that hamper women, particularly those without resources, are almost barbaric.

Please give all women in the Commonwealth a chance to choose their own destiny. The religious right has had its own way for far too long!  Thank you!
