I strongly support the current regulations on abortion centers approved overwhelmingly by the Board of Health. These regulations should be made permanent and continue to include the strongest standards. Although I do not support the abortion process, we must protect the women who make that choice!

The current regulations are acceptable for any facility providing an invasive medical procedure. It is only reasonable to require measures to ensure that life-saving equipment is on hand, that infections are prevented, and every facility must have clear written policies and building guidelines in place. Please ensure that any abortion facility must meet strict standards to protect the health and safety of women. Anything less should be deemed unacceptable by the women of the U.S.

As long as abortion clinics can operate under sub standard conditions they will continue to be run as a money business not a true health clinic.
