Women's Health Centers

The regulations would cause the unnecessary closing of women's health care facilities. These facilities are already safe and provide necessary preventive reproductive health care to women.  Closing these facilitues would deny poor and middle class women access to health care. It would turn back the clock on women's equal rights to health care and create a slew of illegal back alley unregulated and fatal practitioners as we had prior to Roe V Wade. 

Keep in mind that the majority of the services offered are NOT abortion but are related to other reproductive care.  

This is a health issue not a moral or religious issue.
