Please rely on scientific and medical evidence to create legislation that regulates women's bodies. We cannot sink back into a time when ideology dictates people's health choices and standards of care. Reproductive health clinics should be evaluated based on the programs they offer and the ability to meet their patients' needs, not based on broad-sweeping determinants that have nothing to do with the type of services they provide. Reproductive health clinics keep women alive and healthy, and we need to do everything we can to keep them operating in as many places as possible.
