Rules for Clinics
 

The rules that have recently been enacted regulating clinics that perform abortions are right-wing driven.  These rules/restrictions have been enacted to deny a women access to services of their choice.  Certain organizations in our commonwealth state that they do not want the government in their business but its okay if they dictate the decisions a woman makes over her body.  The regulations should allow for grandfather clause for pre-established clinics.  Personal beliefs should not dictate professional decisions and one groups belief should not govern one spectrum of society rights.  If we allow this type of mentality, we are not better than the Taliban or the dictatorship in any foreign country.
