Segment 3 – Gov Whitmer set to seek end of abortion waiting period, other abortion regulations
Dec 11th at the State Capitol, “Governor Whitmer signed the final bill of the so-called Reproductive Health Act which, among other things, repealed the abortion insurance opt-out law. ‘Under the guise of expanding abortion access, the Governor has just mandated that all Michigan taxpayers pay for other peoples’ abortions through insurance purchased on the state exchanges. Today was all about forcing Michigan taxpayers, already experiencing financial strain from inflation, to fund the Governor’s singular policy focus – abortion,’ said Genevieve Marnon, Legislative Director. ‘Do not be fooled. This bill has nothing to do with access to abortion for women who have been subjected to sexual abuse. Women in Michigan have full access to abortion up until birth for any reason whatsoever,’ added Marnon.”

Genevieve Marnon is the Legislative Director of Right to Life of Michigan.
