Regarding the proposed regulations on women's health and abortion clinics

I am a woman and most concerned about the new regulations that the Attorney General has proposed.  It is not in the best interests of women to close these clinics and impose hefty fines if they do not comply to these new regulations.  Some of them are located in areas that do not have essential medical services.  THese regulations have been brought and pressured by certain religious groups that have pressed their demands to the general public.   Please use reason, science and praciticality in coming to your decision, and not religious dogma.  Thank you.
