Abortion Facility Regulations should be made Permanent


I care about the health and safely of women and children in Virginia.  For that reason, I urge the Board of Health to vote again to make the current abortion facility regulations PERMANENT.  Woman deserve better than the low level of cleanliness and safety that has all too often been the reality in the abortion clinics in our Commonwealth.

It is a disgrace to the dignity of women that subpar standards of care are deemed acceptable for women seeking any type of medical care.   It has become obvious that the abortion industry is all about profits, rather than what is best for women and children.  We need to have strong oversight in place to keep abortion industry abuses in check.  Please continue that effort by voting to maintain strong, permanent abortion facility regulations to protect the health and welfare of Virginia’s female citizens.
