Abortion Center Health Safety Standards

I urge you to keep the standards passed by the Virginia Board of Health in September.  These standards are basic to any medical facility. 

The Family Foundation examined inspection documents obtained from the Department of Health through the Freedom of Information Act that found over 80 health and safety violations in just nine of Virginia’s 20 abortion centers.  Recently they released to the media newly discovered violations at other abortion centers inspected since June.  The media has almost completely ignored the blood stained and unsterilized equipment, along with all the other health and safety violations. 

Incredibly, even after the discoveries of so many violations at other centers earlier in the year, the abortion industry is still in the dark ages regarding safe, sanitary medical care.  Safe, sanitary practice must be mandatory.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
