A proposed constitutional amendment, promoted by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, would overturn most, if not all, of the pro-life laws that currently protect unborn children and vulnerable mothers in Michigan. It would also revoke state law that prohibits abortion except to save the mother’s life, which stands to go back into effect if the U.S. Supreme Court allows states to decide the legality of abortion.
A deceptive Constitutional Amendment petition is circulating to allow for unlimited and unregulated abortions in the state. This would legalize abortion at any time of pregnancy, for any reason, and prevent health and safety requirements for abortion facilities. This “Reproductive Freedom” petition is opposed by the Catholic bishops in Michigan. It would allow schools to help teens obtain abortions without their parents knowing. Parents: Do NOT sign away your rights. The “Reproductive Freedom” constitutional amendment puts women’s health at risk. It would eliminate at least 25 health and safety laws that currently regulate abortion and would allow abortion to be performed by anyone – even those without a medical license. If you are approached for a signature, first review the text of the proposal. The unlimited abortion petition description reads “Constitutional Amendment to: establish new individual right to reproductive freedom…” Please do NOT sign this dangerous petition, which is opposed by the Catholic bishops in Michigan.
