Review of Regulations Governing Abortion Center Standards
 

Health and safety regulations for abortion centers should be maintained rather than weakened.  Abortion is invasive surgery and it is only common sense that the regulations for abortion clinics should be as stringent as they are for other health care centers where invasive surgery is performed.  The State should be concerned with the welfare of women who are undergoing abortion.
