Protecting vulnerable women

Many women who go to abortion clinics do so with great fear and trepidation or maybe pressured by male partneers, husbands, or fathers.  Others may go with out any such problems. However, all of them deserve not to end up as victims of an unclean, unsafe, or become a victim of medical malpractice that could lead to serious complications or death. It is the responsibilty of the state to insure that abortion clinics and other medical facilites are safe. Therefore, the current regulations should be kept and if anything strengthened.
