These regs are about abortion, not women's safety

TRAP is being pushed as a way to regulate abortion clinics in the name of safety. This is false, and I know you all know that. The people who are in support of TRAP are not supporting this out of concern for the woman's safety, regardless what they're telling you. They want to end abortions because they don't agree with them- simple as that.

No other private practice in any other field of medicine is forced to undergo these completely unnecessary changes. I know I don't have to explain this to you in detail. I know you know what TRAP really is. 

Please refuse these regulations. And if you're misguided enough to vote in favor of them, at least be reasonable and fair to the millions of women in VA by grandfathering existing clinics.
