Board of Health TRAP regulations

I am writing in opposition to the new proposed "TRAP" regulations.   They are clearly designed withone purpose:  to restrict women's consitutional right to abortion by imposing burdensome regulations on providers, therefore reducing our access to this medical procedure.

As abortion is currently very safe inour state, the argument that this is for women's  safety and protection is patently false.

I urge the board of health to act in the best interests of Virginian Women, and ammend these rgulations toallow women's heath centers accross the state to remain open.  Virginia's women desrve continued access to safe medical care.
