Rescind TRAP regulations

Dear Dept of Health,

The TRAP regulations threaten the availability of safe, legal first-trimester abortion and preventive reproductive health care. Extensive, burdensome requirements for clinic buildings that have no proven medical benefit will reduce or eliminate patient access to health care, especially for low-income women. Please do not allow these regulations to take effect.
