Keep women safe
 

Women deserve to walk into any legal abortion clinic and expect the same standards of cleanliness and regulation as the would receive at any other medical facility that performs invasive medical procedures.  I thought this was one of the reasons for making abortion legal, so that they would be safe.  I oppose abortion and find it ironic that abortion supporters do not seem concerned about the total health and well-being of women.  At the least, if abortion is legal, there should be regulations that will protect the health of every woman who walks into those clinics.

There are plenty of examples out there of unsafe clinics, women dying and a high disregard for the dignity of the woman in these abortion clinics.  Unfortunately these are not reported in the news as the are "inconvenient truths".  Please have the integrity to look at the whole picture and not just what pleases your political fancy.
