TRAp regulations


I am concerned about current efforts to limit women's access to medical care and to safe and legal abortions.The high standard of care provided by women’s health centers is proven by their safety record. There is no evidence for adding the regulations promoted by TRAP. They are toally unneccesary. Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures. Overregulation will limit access to a wide range of preventive reproductive health care services provided by women’s health clinics, including life-saving cancer screenings, family planning, and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment.

Trust women, respect choice, and avoide government over-reach.


Thank you for your time and attention.
