Protect thehealth, welfare and lives of women: Keep the already reasonable regs in place

Please please make permanent the reasonable health regulations levied on abortion clinics.  Womens' health--and even their lives--are dependent on Virginia's careful scrutiny of such faciilities.

Those who provide these  services tthemselves describe abortions as medical procedures.  To fail to ensure that these facilities meet the same safety standards  that apply to other health facilities creates a situation that puts women'shealth and even their lives in peril. 

While I am opposed to abortion, I do love my neighbor---even the neighbor I've never met and even the neighbor who engages in behavior I cannot condone.  Please take care of the women of Virginia, regardless of the morality of the choices they make.  thank you.
