Protect the women

I think that just because a woman is seeking an abortion does not mean that she deserves a lower level of health care, a lower level of health and cleanliness standard. You can look up the reports of the facilities that have utterly failed to maintain a minimal standard of cleanliness in their clinic.  If they claim to want to serve woman and help them, then they should follow health and hygiene protocol as set forth in the regulations.  I fail to understand why people will settle for these clinics providing unclean, unsterile, unhygeinic services as long as they are "only" doing abortions.  How does this serve those women?
