NO Anti-Choise TRAP Law


TRAP laws mandate health centers pursue costly renovations-- to widen their hallways or install additional janitor closets-- that most small clinics cannot afford. If these regulations are enacted, the majority of Virginia’s women’s health centers could be shut down within a few years.

These requirements are not supported by Virginia Physicians or medical experts, and a recent survey reveals Virginians do not uspport them either. In fact the opposition is uniform across partisan boundaries, with a majority of Independents, Democrats and Republicans all saying they dissaprove of this government overstep—AND that when it comes to health care they trust doctors and medical experts over politicians.
