Clinic Regulations are NECESSARY

Freedom of Information Act that found over 80 health and safety violations in just nine of Virginia’s 20 abortion centers.  The violations included bloody examination tables, unsterilized and outdated medical equipment, untrained staff and more.  Women deserve to have a medically safe experience with trained/licensed personnel and cleanliness.  If you know about blood borne pathogens you know that based on current observations at abortion clinics it is FAR under par.  Abortion clinic are not self-regulating and should not be left alone to continue, which hurts all the women using the facilities thinking it is a safe operation.  It is not safe without the regulations
