These proposed regulations are not for women's health and safety but to limit abortions, a political position taken by our Republican Governor and Attorney General. There is no evidence that legal abortions in Virginia are unsafe or that further regulation is needed to make them safer.  Virginians should expect expertise from our boards, not political decisions.  I hope this attack on a woman's LEGAL right to choose to have an abortion will be rejected.  Thank you.BA
