Undue Burden on Patients
 

Regulations need to be promulgated on all medical offices and abortioncare services should not be singled out.  Patients currently have to endure coming in for two separate appointments from all across the DC Metropolitan Area and further in order to recieve abortioncare services.  Patients have to take time off twice out of work, time away from caring for their family, drive hours back and forth for multiple trips to receive abortioncare services. Patients who receive medical services outside of abortioncare do not have to go through numerous obstacles and challenges to receive services and nor should patients who need abortioncare services.  Abortioncare is safe and it is a right.
