Permanent Abortion Facility Regulations Help Protect Women’s Health

“I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health.  These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards.

I refuse to accept the premise that abortion is health care because it ends lives rather than healing them.  However, the existence of the abortion industry under the guise of “health care” is a sad and tragic reality in our Commonwealth and our country.  The current regulations are reasonable, common-sense measures to ensure that life-saving equipment is on hand, infections are prevented, and clear written policies and building guidelines are in place.  Please maintain strong permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and safety of women.

Abortion is, simply put, the deliberate murder of a living child.  Those people who participate in it are guilty of grave wrongdoing and those who consciously participate in facilitating it are equally to blame.  It is a crime against humanity as repulsive as the "Slaughtering of the Innocents " and the "Holocaust".  Not just the child but the mother is irreparably affected --- physically and psychologically.  If physical plants devoted to the killing of our children are to be permitted at all and they shouldn't be, they MUST be regulated to the highest possible standards!
