Regulations for abortion facilities

An abortion is a surgical procedure, therefore there should strict guidelines and standards that the abortion facilities should have to meet.  Even though we have Roe vs. Wade: abortion is legal but not safe!  Gosnell killed women in his Philadelphia abortion facility.  When they finally closed his facility down they found FILTH.  It is no wonder that women's lives were at risk.  Why do we protect these individuals?  Recenly, a young, married women who was 33 weeks pregnant went to Carhartt in Montgomery County, MD for a third trimester abortion.  The woman died.  She called and asked Carhartt's office if she should go to the emergency room (she was having ccomplications).  Unfortunately, she never got the help she needed and died.  If you are going to allow abortion the facilities should have to meet the same standards that other similar medical facilities have to meet.  Thank you.
