Women Deserve Safety Regulations at Abortion facilities

I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health that would ensure basic safety measures. 

Too many women and children have died, sadly illustrated by the horrific recent cases of abortion providers Gosnell and Carhart.

Common sense regulations, such as sterilized equipment and access to emergency services, should be made permanent.

Because women deserve better.
