I strongly oppose the TRAP legislation that is being pushed through by far-right ideologues.  I don;t buy the excuse that the regulations will make it safer for women - for if safety is at the core of their intents....why then not make ALL medical practices who do outpatient surgery comply with the proposed regulations? 

If you don't like abortion, do not have one.  Plain and simple. 

I oppose these regulations and expect the board to vote on them with reason, instead of a far-right political agenda and the lie that they are overly concerned with safety for women.  For if THAT is the case, it would sure be nice to see them try and make sure the maternal and infant death rate in VA be brought to ZERO.
