I am voicing my opposition to the TRAP regulations for women's health centers.  The regulations would increase the financial hurdles to health care for patients, and appear to have no basis other than to support an agenda that will make it more difficult for a woman to access safe abortions.  Medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome regulations would restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options. 


Thank you,

Kelly Gerow
