Abortion provider regulations

Dear Regulators:

I'm writing to express my opposition to draconian abortion provider regulations currently contemplated by the Board of Health.

Imposing disparate regulations on abortion clinics doesn't improve the health and safety of Virginians; instead, they make safe, legal first-trimester abortions unobtainable for women to access, especially young, low-income women who already suffer from inadequate access to healthcare.

Please do not endanger women's access to a needed healthcare service. Do not enact regulations specifically targeting abortion providers.
