TRAP=Fascist Politics, not Health

If TRAP were truly about healthcare, then the regulations would apply to ALL doctors, ALL non-hospital surgeries. My podiatrist can operate in a small 6x11 room in her office. My husband had a vasectomy at his urologist's office 25 yrs. ago in a room smaller than my little laundry room.

TRAP is about politicians trying to force-feed religious beliefs from behind a political/health mask. Anyone who knows about the facilities that perform abortions also knows that this is just a small percentage of what they do. This is where women can get pap smears and birth control, men can get STD testing and prostate cancer screenings.

In trying to control women through TRAP, the health of the poor and the uninsured - women and men- will also suffer. 

Stop TRAP now.
