Oppose TRAP

These regulations are unneccessary and will lead to the deaths of Virginian women who will be forced to try to self-abort out of despiration. Don't make us go back to pre-Roe v Wade. This is clearly a political game, but there are real people who will be suffering if these regulations are passed. Women deserve to have the same rights as men do, including reproductive autonomy. We are not less than human or less deserving of equality than men, so please stop treating us that way. Our bodies belong to us, they are not yours to regulate and/or control. We are capable of making our own decisions about our health, so stop treating us like children.
