TRAP regulations - not needed for health or safety

I am opposed to the TRAP regulations. They are not needed to provide safety or to help women in any way.  They are clearly intended to prevent access to safe and legal abortions.  I have two children who may need safe and legal abortion services at some time in the next few years.  I want to know they can receive safe health care in Virginia.  

I grew up in the 1960s. I remember when abortion was not legal and women suffered and died as a result.  

Potiticians in Virginia have no right to impose their personal religious beliefs on other citizens.
