TRAP regulations

As a Registered Nurse in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I can tell you that neither the "design" of a medical building nor the number of parking spaces in front of the medical building ensure safe, effective medical care.  Rather, it is the skill of the medical professionals who are working with patients inside the building.  Professionals with medical degrees and nursing degrees:  people who have been licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

But you already know that.  TRAP is merely a smokescreen set up by extremely conservative politicians, most of whom have no medical training, who are pandering to a small group of conservatives with deep pockets. 


Please do the right thing: protect the women of Virginia by overturning TRAP to ensure access to reproductive healthcare for ALL women.

Thank you for your consideration!
