Abortion Clinics Perform Surgery and need to be Regulated like a Hospital

I do not understand the opposition to this.  This is about Safety for women.  These regulation require safety practices that should be normal in any place that does surgery on the order of an abortion.  An abortion is surgery where emergency situations can occur.  I watched an ambulance carry a person out of an abortion clinic who was having an abortion that day.  Abortion clinics need to have hallways as specified in the new regulations so that patient stretcher that ambulances use have the room to maneuver.  This is about having safe procedures to insure the safety of women. 

The people that are against this just want cheep abortion at the cost of safety of women.  This is crazy.  Please for the safety of women, all abortion clinics need to comply with these regulations.

Thanks for taking the input,

Brian Addington
