Do not restrict access to abortion
All of the measures brought here have one main purpose despite their stated intent. Each layer of regulation makes our more difficult, mor expensive to provide abortion as well as drastically diminishes the number of centers available to women needing an abortion. Pr women sho cannot find private providers will be impacted very disproportionately. As a nurse I know that the procedure of abortion is no more difficult to perform than several other procedures regularly done in physicians offices. The safety record is not debatable
