Please vote against the proposed TRAP laws.  These laws have absolutely nothing to do with protecting women and everything to do with driving abortion providers out of business and restricting access to abortion services.  It is an effort to make an end run around legal abortion.  There is no legitimate case for making abortion providers adhere to much stricter standards but not other medical care facilities.  There is no evidence to support any neccessity for these laws.  Abortion is safe and legal and should remain so.

Thank you for your consideration.
