Reproductive Rights in Va

As a woman in Virginia, a mother in Virginia and a citizen of the United States, it is the right of all women to seek out a termination of pregnancy if we feel it is necessary for us to do so. We have that right through Roe V. Wade. By making centers jump through hoops, by making low income women have an even harder time with access,  you are infringing on our rights! If this was about your second amendment rights, there wouldn't even be an argument. Women were given this right and as a state, I find this appalling! We need public access to good doctors and safe procedures, not bigger hallways...not larger rooms! We need this state to give women their ability to make decisions without politics playing a game with real people, real lives, and really hard decisions for votes!
