TRAP regulations

These regulations are a blatant ideological move - in point of fact, I can have oral surgery with anesthesia or invasive breast augmentation at outpatient surgery centers that are NOT required to have these regulations that are supposedly for a woman's health and safety.

Medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome regulations will restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options. 

You are demonstrating your biases by including regulations not based on evidence but rather on ideology.
