The TRAP regulations are designed to place barriers to women's health care NOT protect them. For years these centers have provided SAFE essential services to women, especially women from low income families. The centers do NOT provide the medically invasive procedures that hospitals and other centers provide which require these architectural changes. These regulations are motivated by religiious and political ideology which has no place in health care decisions and regulations. Please protect all Virginian women and oppose these changes.
