I oppose TRAP regulations


To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to let you know that I oppose the Targeted Regulations Against Abortion Providers. These regulations will force many of Virginia's women's health centers to close--this does women in Virginia a huge disservice and is a backwards step for public health in our state. I believe that access to affordable healthcare is essential for everyone and if these clinics are forced to close many women will lose access to affordable clinical care. These clinics provide many essential services, including wellness check-ups, breast examinations, and access to birth control. These TRAP regulations are designed to block women from getting health care. Medical regulations should be based on legitimate health and safety needs—not anti-choice politics.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
