Bill Would Make Michigan’s Webcam Abortion Ban Permanent

On November 29, the Michigan Senate voted 25-12 to pass legislation to make our state's ban on webcam abortions permanent before it expires at the end of the year. The legislation is now before the Michigan House for consideration. FDA guidelines state that the abortion pill (RU-486) should be given to patients by the abortionist directly, but the abortion industry wants to allow abortionists to give out the abortion pill without ever meeting a patient in person. The abortion pill can be especially dangerous if the woman has an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy. At least 22 women have died taking the abortion pill.

The US Supreme Court and Planned Parenthood

On December 10 the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to take up two cases involving defunding Planned Parenthood. The cases are very complicated, dealing with Medicaid law and how someone can bring a lawsuit to decide whether or not an organization can be a “qualified” provider. By refusing to take the cases, the various circuit court rulings are left to stand.

Latest CDC Abortion Report Shows Further Decline

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released their latest annual report on abortion statistics, showing that abortion rates are lower than ever. Though it is unacceptable that any number of children should die because of abortion, it is encouraging to see that the number of lives lost decreases each year—slowly but surely. The total number of reported abortions in the U.S. decreased 2% from 652,639 in 2014 to 638,169 in 2015. This number has been steadily dropping.

March for Life 2019

The annual National March for Life will be in Washington, D.C. on January 18. The March for Life is a great opportunity to physically stand up for the rights of the unborn and demonstrate support for life in our nation’s capital. On the 46th memorial of the legalization of abortion through Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, hundreds of thousands of people will gather to protest the injustice of abortion. This year the speakers at the rally preceding the March are Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood abortion facility director, and Ben Shapiro, host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” a top national podcast. Several Right to Life of Michigan affiliates are planning bus trips for the March.
