Women's Health Rights in Abortion Facilities

I urge the Board to promote the current Regulations concerning abortion facilities and clinics in our commonwealth and to make them permanent.  Women have rights to safety in healthcare and should not be subject to abusive medical malpractice anywhere.  Regulations must control the sanitary conditions of women especially when blood and other bodily fluids are involved in these procedures.  Licensing of these facilities must ensure competency of medical staff to safeguard the women's bodily functions, internal organs, and overall natural health especially during pregnancy.  Women have too long suffered at the hands of those who would take advantage of their poor econimic circumstances to coerce unnatural
termination of their progeny. I urge moral and medical sense as well as compassion for the rights of poor women who are most often victims of poor treatment at the hands of the unscrupulous abortionists. I urge the board of health to tighten the reigns which have been all to loose in the past. Please make these regulations permanent. Thank you for  listening.
