TRAP Laws Hurt Women's Access

The current proposed TRAP laws are unneccessary and are just attempts at shutting down the clinics that do provide health services to women.  This should not be a fight about religion or morals, but a clear discussion of what is necessary and what is unnecessary.  Of course I care about the safety of women in Virginia, and so do abortion providers.  Which is why there is such care and attention given when it comes to abortion health care.  After all, Virginia has a complication rate of less than 1% for abortions in the past 11 years.  Don't pass these laws, you will shut down almost every single clinic in the state of Virginia.  Women need health care and reproductive freedom.  Stand with your citizens, stand with women.  Do not buckle down to political or religious pressure, do what is factually accurate!
