Michigan Governor Unveils New York-Like Abortion Law

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer
On October 29, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and pro-abortion allies unveiled the “Reproductive Health Act.” This bill, if passed, would allow unlimited abortions in the state of Michigan up to the moment of birth

Although it has not yet been introduced to a legislative body, it has been confirmed that the bill would:

  • Allow minor teens to have secret abortions without their parents’ consent—or even knowledge.
  • Allow abortion facilities to ignore health and safety regulations that other medical clinics follow.
  • Allow abortion facilities to refuse to provide informed consent to women.
  • Allow walk-in abortions with no waiting period.
The bill may also allow taxpayer dollars to fund abortions and allow nurses and physician assistants to perform surgical abortions.

“They’ve already passed a bill to ban a safe procedure that has saved women’s lives,” Governor Whitmer said, referring to a bill that outlaws abortion procedures in which doctors forcibly tear a baby apart limb from limb in order to remove it from its mother's womb. “And as they know, I’m going to veto those bills if they ever have the backbone to send them to my desk.”
