Keep abortions available for all women

Burdonsome restrictions on the construction/maintenance of facilities dedicated to the health and well being of all women is unnecessary.  The existing regulations and rules more than adequately provide for safe procedures for women seeking to terminate a pregnancy.  There is no reason other than a political one to add an additional layer of regulations on these faciliities.  It is the right of any woman to control her own body and access to facilities is part of that right.
