A little common sense
 

As a woman, I feel that I and other women deserve medical care in medical facilities that are the equal of those provided to men, and to both sexes whose aim is not abortion.  Does the name Kermit Gosnell mean anything to you?  Google it, and read what you find.  This is what is provided to women in places where the regulations are not up to snuff (or are not enforced). 

As a scientist, I think the comments about these regulations preventing women from getting necessary health care are ridiculous.  Necessary health care is provided in any hospital.  What is "necessary health care" about killing human beings (proven as such by their DNA:  yes, every fetus no matter how small has DNA that is demonstrably human and just as demonstrably not that of the mother) just because they're small and therefore easy to attack?

As a former fetus who would have been a prime candidate for abortion if it had been legal at that time, I approve of anything that does make it a little more difficult to obtain an abortion.  I like having had a life of over 71 years on this earth, and I could, if I had time, provide you with newspaper article citations which show I made the world a little better place to live in.  And did you know 64 percent of abortions involve coercion?  Is it really a good thing to aid and abet those who coerce (in other words, bullies)?

I could go on, but I'll just say, yes, I support strict regulations, well enforced, for all health care facilities.  That includes the regulations currently under discussion.
