Proposed TRAP regulations

Re proposed TRAP regulations on Virginia women’s health clinics

The Virginia Board of Health must not sign TRAP regulations, given the overwhelming evidence that doing so would violate the will of the majority, and the advice of numerous expert medical/health advisory bodies and professionals:

Officials who promulgate TRAP regulations, or otherwise try to restrict women’s (and families') most needed healthcare services, are clearly not “conservative” in any sense, or even democratic in their action. It is an embarrassment, and more, a tragedy, that such officials would call themselves representatives of the people of our Commonwealth.
