Get over the hype and protect health

It is so silly to read the comments here. I hope the legislators have more sense than to listen to all this hype about these regulations sending us back to the days of back-alley abortions.
What is it that we want to avoid about back-alley abortions? Is it not that women were not protected and didn't get good medical services? Are not back-alley abortions reprehensible because in case of a failed abortion the women wouldn't have access to an ambulance to get to the hospital?
This legislation actually moves us away from back-alley style abortions.

Please vote in favor of protecting women's health.
