Abortion Care

Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures a woman can have.

Virginia's attempt to legislate ONLY abortion in this instance makes the legislature's motivations completely transparent - this is a poor attempt to make abortions less available for the women of Virginia based on ideologies and not science, or facts.

Extensive, burdensome requirements for clinic buildings that are unrelated to the services health centers provide and have no proven medical benefit will reduce or eliminate patient access to health care.

Stop this assault on women's health, and get back to doing your JOBS - taking care of ALL people in the state, and not harassing healthcare providers. You are politicians - you are not medical professionals.
