Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women’s Health
 

I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health - and I think there's a good reason the Board has approved these measures.  Everyone, whether pro-choice or pro-life, should see the common sense in protecting the women who are undergoing a major surgery.  Why would anyone not want life-saving equipment on hand, just in case?  Why not expect the same standards from abortion facilities as from every other medical facility?  We need clearly writeen policies that are enforced for the health and safety of the women.   These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards. Thank you.
