Physician supports safety regulation

I thank our legislators for their tireless efforts to consider the safety and protection the citizens of this great state in crafting this new legislation to carefully regulate the abortion industry. I appreciate the intent of the rules and regulations for abortion clinics to move beyond the emergency regulations that are currently in effect; to set minimum standards for operations of a medical/surgical facility in accordance with existing state laws; to promote standards of professional accountability that any health facility should be proud of; to require inspections of all health facilities and not exclude any particular class; and to invite public discourse before promulgation of any legislation in the great tradition of this country.

Thank you .

George Tran, MD
