Base regulations on science
 

Regulations should be based on science, not political or religious beliefs. Abortion is a common medical procedure, usually less risky than childbirth. Medically unnecessary regulations restrict access to safe procedures and cause undue hardship on the people who can least afford it. Support the ability and right of women to make sound decisions regarding their own bodies and remove regulations which do nothing to improve health outcomes.
