Attention Virginia Board of Health: Please carefully consider the value of placing restrictions on women's health centers around the Commonwealth. Because many of the proposed changes/restrictions have to do with architecture, thus forcing the centers to incur additional costs to comply, many of them may have to close -- thereby denying access to health care to many women.
Enacting restrictions of the type proposed would be a triumph for ideology but, sadly, a defeat for the Virginia women who depend on the centers for their health and wellbeing.
Please do not enact these restrictions;o that the centers may continue to fulfill their missions of providing health care to those who need it.
Thank you for your consideration.
