TRAP is not about women's safety
 

I strongly oppose these regulations insultingly disguised as concern for women's safety when it is clearly an attempt to limit women's access to safe abortion. Abortion is legal, and it is already a safe procedure when performed by licensed abortion providers. Religious opposition to abortion does not invalidate a woman's right to privacy and medical care. If anyone reading this actually believes TRAP is good for women, read this: http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2011/09/15/virginia-physician-speaks-behalf-abortion-access-womens-health-safety/
