What's At Stake
On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and as a result a 1931 Michigan law could go back into effect, making abortion illegal and threatening doctors who provide abortion services with prison for up to 15 years. This amendment would make sure no one goes to prison for providing safe medical care as well as ensure access to a broad range of reproductive health care, including abortion.
In Michigan, we trust women. The decision of whether to become pregnant or a parent is too important to leave up to politicians. This proposal will affirm that every Michigander has the fundamental right to reproductive freedom, which involves the right to make and carry out decisions without political interference about all matters relating to pregnancy, including birth control, abortion, prenatal care, and childbirth.
Protecting reproductive freedom in the Michigan Constitution will preserve this right for all Michiganders in our state, no matter what happens in Washington, D.C. Together, Michigan voters can protect reproductive freedom – for ourselves, our families, and our future.
