Citizen against TRAP

Now that the public comment period is open, I feel deeply compelled to write to you and express my complete disgust for the unnecessary and burdensome TRAP regulations that are up for approval.  If approved, these regulations threaten the continued availability of safe, legal first-trimester abortions and preventetive reproductive health care in multiple locations throughout the state.  These regulations will also further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured, and minority women by decreasing their health care options.  

These regulations appear to be nothing more than a slight against women's health care and a way to force a pro-life agenda on the women of Virginia and I, for one, do not approve and I don't think I'm alone in this.

It is my hope that the regulations will be amended to be based purly on medicine and science and should not impede women's access to essential health care.
