Women's healthcare at risk
 

The TRAP regulations threaten the continued availability of safe, legal first-trimester abortion and preventive reproductive health care in multiple locations throughout the state. 

 
Why put extensive, burdensome requirements for clinic buildings that are unrelated to the services health centers provide and have no proven medical benefit will reduce or eliminate patient access to health care?  I firmly believe that tHe regulations will increase the financial hurdles to health care for patients and have no proven medical benefit to patients. Women in Virginia need more access to affordable, high quality health care, not less.
