Please overturn TRAP regulations in Virginia


I was in college in the 1960's before Roe v Wade.  I knew fellow female students who got pregnant. 

Here's the truth:  the POOR females who had no choice got back alley abortions.  Some were permanently mutilated and many died. 

The RICH females were flown away to other countries for a safe, secure abortion or their families 'arranged' for one through a family physician.  WEALTHY FEMALES WILL ALWAYS GET ABORTIONS, but without access to abortions you are condemning poor women to back alley mutilations or bringing children into this world who cannot be cared for. 

You cannot dictate morality for others, that is between God and the Woman.  Your religion and morality have no place in public policy......remember the separation of church and state that our Founding Fathers wanted, this is why!
