New abortion clinic regulations
 

Wanted to share feel it's absurd to require the clinics to adhere to hospital standards with issues such as wide enough hallways.  Enough space for a wheelchair is sufficient in a clinic for these purposes.  If they are forced to close for not being able to afford the upgrades then the valuable services that a place such as Planned Parenthood, who I have gotten birth control pills from when did not have insurance, offer will become ridiculously difficult to come by. 

It amazes me the lengths certain groups will go to just to make women inhuman.  We are invaluable to the life of this planet and should be treated with such respect.  Stop pinpointing services provided to women because if you squelch us too far there will be a revolt.  Abortion is legal and should always be legal as it is a personal decision made by a woman;  the regulations are telling the world you do NOT care about womens health instead of your supposed concern for it.  You will be responsible for the decline in womens health in Virginia once these clinics are forced to close.
