Stop the real agenda of the AG

Do not sign off on the TRAP regulations. The are discriminatory to women.  Scientific evidence is required to support changes in medical practice. Abortions are a safe, outpatient procedure - far safer than carrying a pregnancy to term. Three-quarters of Americans, including Virginians, support a woman's constitutional right to an abortion. The TRAP regulations are designed to foist a specific political agenda on all women.  They are unconsititutional and wrong. They will limit accessiblity to healthcare for women (the real agenda of the Attorney General).  Regulatory agencies should be supporting accessible, evidence-based healthcare for all women.  End TRAP.
