Physician supports safety regulation

I thank our legislators for their tireless efforts to consider the safety and protection of 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
