Unnecessary and overly burdensome regulations

Women sometimes need access to an abortion, and everyone should see the value in having a safe and suitable facility, but the extra restrictions seem more intent in decreasing the availablity of such facilities, with a goal of making the abortion more and more difficult to obtain. Women should not be subject to sometimes extreme burdens in seeking a medical procedure because there are fewer and fewer places where this legal procedure is available. Men would not stand for the limits placed on accessing healthcare such as those that females experience while seeking the constitutionally protected right to access safe and legal abortion care.
