No TRAP
 

The Targeted Regulations Again Abortion Providers are a restriction to our current rights to an abortion. TRAP does not increase the health and safety options for women; instead, they limit the choices and will possibly force women back to days of illegal and highly dangerous abortions. At a minimum, they will add to the stress of access to an abortion, either requiring long distances to find an clinic and/or higher costs.
