Abortion Center Regulations as Hospitals
 

I am so grateful that abortion clinics wil be held to the same standards as hospitals irmedicalclinics that perform outpatient surgeries - thank you for protecting the lives of women who at such a vulnerable time require that their medical care is provided to them at the highest level possible. Please don't allow abortion clinics to prevail at reducing these standards. I'm now 62 and do healing work with women who were traumatized during an abortion because of the lack of professional medical care they received. Contrary to the hype that clinics put forth as truth - so many of them lack the expertise and facilitiy standards necessary to save the life if the woman who has come to them to merely terminate the life of their fetus.
