The TRAP laws are political in nature and not based on any medical needs. They are bad for women and bad for women's health. It jeopardizes access to safe abortions, a right that is guaranteed by law. Even if health centers meet the new requirements, it may well put the costs of abortions our of reach for many women. Maybe that is ultimately the reason for this law - to prevent or curtail abortions. Shame on Va Legislators, and especially the Attorney General Cuccinelli, for trying to imposed their own moral standards on the citizens of Va.
