Oppose TRAP

It is unconsionable that this message even needs to be sent. 

If TRAP is approved, Virginia will effectively shut down access to the reproductive healthcare, reproductive information,  and safe, legal abortion that’s been available for 40 years.  These unnecessary and politically-motivated requirements could force the majority of Virginia’s women’s health centers to shut their doors, and could leave thousands of women without access to essential reproductive care.

Please stop the war on women In Virginia. These are not political issues. A predominantly male state government has no right to dictate healthcare and reproductive rules for women.

Thank you for allowing cooler heads to prevail.
