Keep Women's Health Centers OPEN

It is of vital importance that Virginia keep Women's Health Centers open.  Do not burden them with regulations that will make it more difficult to operate.  The centers provide cancer screenings, reproductive health services, family planning essentials, morning after pills and abortions.  I tutor children in a minority school where a high percentage come from single parent families, meaning Mom and Grandmom are doing everything for these kids.  It is most important that birth control and the prevention of unwanted pregnancies is affordable and available.

Isn't it strange that the same people who try to limit a women's right to an abortion are also against birth control, sex education and family planning.  Sounds like a conspiracy.  What's next - will we lose the right to vote!
