Women's Health

Women must have access to excellent health care. We are not "the weaker sex" and do not need to march backwards when it comes to health care, options and yes, choice when it comes to whether or not we have children.  Good health care, and appropriate options are essential in this society today. By restricting what choices women can make with regard to their personal health care, you diminish them, encourage criminal efforts and leave the door open for less than qualified persons to offer questionable and affordable health care. Laws are meant to guide civil society, protect us physically and mentally, etc.. It is not the right of government to go into the privacy and sanctity of a person's bedroom. Let us flourish and make the country stronger. Viriginia should be viewed as progressive on all fronts, not stifle growth and support of all of it's citizens.

What a contradiction for Virginia to be pro-death penalty, but no pro-choice! Please don't force humialting and embarrassing restrictions on women's health care.
