TRAP is harmful and not needed

TRAP is not needed and is harmful to women.  Early abortion is a safe, legal medical procedure that has been performed in a doctor’s office for years.

I worked in a hospital before abortion was legal and witnessed women coming into the emergency room septic and dying from unsafe, illegal abortions.

If TRAP is enacted, women will still get abortions, either going out of state or risking

unsafe, illegal abortions.
