Protect Access to Women's Health Care!
Red Tape Will "TRAP” Virginia Women
In March 2011, Governor McDonnell signed SB 924, a bill that classifies women’s health centers in the state as a category of hospitals, making them subject to new regulations created by the Department of Health. These laws are called "TRAP laws,” which stands for Targeted Regulations Against Abortion Providers. Now is the time to stand up for Virginia women.
Laws that target only abortion providers have nothing to do with the safe delivery of services for women and everything to do with legislators’ efforts to restrict access to reproductive healthcare.
Women’s health centers that provide a full range of comprehensive health care services could close because of an inability to meet regulations that have nothing to do with women’s health and safety. Learn more about the permanent regulations.
