Regarding the comment about the "little effect" of Pro-Choice Alliance lobby day [February 5: "4Better or Worse"]– I would hope that people who purport to be concerned with the health and safety of women would celebrate holding abortion clinics to the same standards as ambulatory surgery centers, since they are, after all, performing ambulatory surgery.
