Permanent abortion facility regulations needed to protect women

I strongly support making the currently approved regulations for abortion facilities in VA permanent. I am deeply saddened that this is even an issue. If our state fails to protect women by providing the necessary equipment, cleanliness, and other standards of decency for them during a procedure that is overwhelmingly difficult for them to endure, what does that say about the dignity of the women of Virginia?  To settle for anything less is a sad testament that in the state of Virginia, women themselves are no better than animals!
