Maintain the highest of standards
Virginia Board of Health
I am writing to urge you to maintain the highest of standards in abortion clinics within our state. To do anything else is an abrogation of your duty and would come as a shock to the majority of citzens in our state who are unaware these deliberation are happening. Abortion is a surgical procedure and to allow these facitlities to operate without maintaining the standards of other out patient surgical facilites is accomodation that escapes reason. Why may I ask? These clinic by and large are money making ventures like any business and are free to make whatever decision they deem to necessary to protect their profit. Regulations by the state are the only sure way to make sure that cleanliness, safety, health, and overall professionalism, that all patients have a right to expect, are not being sacrificed for the almighty bottom line. Please do the work of the Board of Health and protect our citizens by maintaining the highest of standards. Virginians deserve no less.
