TRAP regulations

I am appalled that these onerous regu lations that will be aplied to health clinics that offer critical services, especially to underserved families, are even b eing considered.  Please stand up to political pressure/religious belief and operate on the basis of science.  Under the current regulations, the government is not forcing anyone to get an abortion.  But under the proposed regulations, as clinics will be forced to close or not offer abortion, many will be forced to do without critical health services, including abortion.  For families and women already in poor economic situations,  this worsens both their economic and health conditions.


Please do not implement the proposed TRAP regulations.


Sincerely,  Phoebe Antrim
