TRAP Regulations

Please support the TRAP regulations. They are medically necessary in that there are abortion facilities that do not meet safety regulations. Speaking to its provisions: The need of access for emergency responder to take care of problems is important for the health of the mother. Most clinics are unhealthy in all instances for both the mother and the unborn child.  Ideological supporters of abortion minimize these concerns in a effort to foist their agenda on the public. From these same ideologues who told us years ago that the fetus is only tissue, we are now being told that the clinics are safe without speaking to the true conditions. Doctors, especially those who support such procedures, say that there is no problem.

Consider the anecdotal evidence that abounds in clinics inspected in Pennsylvania, the environs of D.C. and Alabama. Virginia clinics are not immune to the same disregard for health and safety when all is relegated to taking profits at such a cost.   Consider the media's blatant disregard of reporting the proceedings of Dr. Gosnell's trial and the condition in which he kept his clinic. "Just move along, there is nothing to see here" is the theme of the media and of ideologues who want to silence opponents of abortion in all cases and in particular instances.

I am not moved by those who oppose the opponents of abortion and the problems of particular clinics. You are not reasonable so much that you are purposefully blind
