Safety Regulations for Abortion Clinics
I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health. These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards.
If abortion is considered health care, then abortion clinics should be held to the same high standards as other medical clinics. Unfortunately, the abortion clinics have proven that they cannot be relied upon to self-regulate and promote standards of cleanliness and safety in their facilities.
We need these regulations to protect the health and safety of women.
