Re: TRAP regulations

I am requesting that the Board of Health stop being intimidated by Ken Cuccinelli.  Please do not deny women access to a free, safe, legal abortion by passing the TRAP regulations as currently proposed.  I need not go into detail here. 

The regulations that are being pushed by Ken Cuccinelli are nothing more than a poorly disguised attempt to deny women access to safe, legal abortion.  He is trying to make women's reproductive decisions for them by this very denial.  Please stand up to him and keep us from going back to the early 1970's when this safe, legal abortion was not accessible to women.

If you do not stand up to him and to the far right extremists, then we will definitely have a return to the days when women resorted to coat hangers to abort, and likely have a much better chance of dying.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
