Disapprove of political gamesmanship that will limit access to primary healthcare.

Medically inappropriate and unnecessarily burdensome regulations would restrict access to essential health care services for the women of Virginia and further marginalize young, low-income, uninsured and minority women by decreasing their health care options.  As a voter and concerned citizen I would urge the Board to exercise any power to push back on the overzealous lawmakers who pushed through this detrimental change.
