Women need protection from loose healthcare regs
 

Women need to know that a facility is clean and regulated and that there is keen oversight in keeping it so. When a woman has her feet in stirrups and is totally at the mercy of the man in the mask holding the loop-shaped knife, it's too late for her to ask questions. If she changes her mind about having an abortion or does have questions, she needs to know her concerns will be addressed. Regulation puts the Kermit Gosnells out of business, and keeps more women alive.
