PUBLIC COMMENT: protect women’s access to reproductive health care

I am certain that the Board of Health wants to do a good job - BUT for whom and at whose expense? 

Is the Board of Health  a TOOL of Gov. McDonnell and Attorney General Cuccinelli or is it Board protector of men and women's healthcare needs in 2013 - not 1950?  Somewhere there is a time machine that sent the Gov. and the Attorney General back to the good old days in 1950 when women stayed home and had babies.  Well - in 2013 two people need to work to support one or two children.  Those two people are impacted by the Board's decision the same as Marie Antionette was impacted by the guillotine!!!  

Women have been on a slippery slope to total domination by men and men's agendas in this country.

The one ray of light to give hope to women is that they no longer have to be a slave to their bodies - women should be in charge of their own destiny and to do so requires available healthcare. Board of Health decsions impact women and teir families including the children they may already have. 

Available healthcare means that a woman's healthcare provider at a licensed clinic is:

1. within affordable distance of where the woman lives

2. with affordable fees

3. with the means to provide the care that she and her doctor agree is desired or needed


5. without any restrictions!!!!
