Proposed regulations on providers of women's health services

As a woman and the mother of a daughter, I wish for all women in the Commonwealth to be able to exercise their options for reproductive health care and parenthood. I think the TRAP regulations poses unnecessary expense and obstacles on healthcare providers in an unwise and unwarranted effort to restrict health care services for women.  It is my expectation that women's health care in Virginia be guided by the best science and common sense -- it should not be dictated by a group of legislators who are mostly of the opposite sex.  Thank you for your consideration of my comments.
