Please make TRAP, health standards for abortion clinics permanent to help protect women and keep abortion
clinics at least safe for the women. All places where out patient surgery is performed must meet health standards.
Why should abortion clinics be any different?. We see that at least 9 abortion clinics in Virginia had gross health
violations without these health standard regulations. These violations included unsteriled equiment which could
cause severe infections in women, blood left uncleaned in rooms which could transmit AIDs and other diseases,
and untrained assistants which could could seriously effect a womens health if abortion complications are not
unrecognized. For the sake of the women please support permanent health standard regulations for abortion clinics.
Thank you for protecting women.
