Keep TRAP in place and enforce these common sense rules now!

There is no excuse for allowing clinics to operate in an unsafe environment! Women are routinely exposed to unnecessary risk due the unscrupulous operation of abortion clinics. Clinics carry a name that implies a level of medical care that is not currently available to the women that visit abortion clinics. If clinics that perform medical procedures must provide for medical emergencies, then abortion clinics are clearly out of compliance. The grace period for clinics to comply should be ended immediately, and those that are not in compliance should be shuttered, and the doctors that perform abortions and that supervise nurses who perform and assist to perform abortions in these substandard and non-compliant facilites should be reported to the AMA and other professional organizations regarding their lack of regard for human life.
