Keep Abortion Clinics Regulated

We are learning of more and more women being injured or dying due to lax medical procedures or regulations at abortion clinics across the nation.  Why aren't abortion clinics being held to the same standards as other facilities that offer outpatient surgical procedures?  Is the so-called "right to abortion" such an untouchable issue that we are willing to sacrifice women's health and safety in order to appear "politically correct"?  Planned Parenthood is making millions on abortions....and receiving taxpayer funding to boot.  It isn't a mystery as to why they are screaming and hollaring about these proposed regulations.  Keep the regulations.
