Banning Dismemberment Abortions in Michigan

On March 12, bills were introduced to ban dismemberment abortions in Michigan. House Bills 4320 and 4321 would amend Michigan’s 2011 ban on partial-birth abortions by including the dismemberment abortion procedure, also known as a dilation and evacuation abortion (D&E). These bills are Michigan’s response to New York’s abortion law and other states seeking to explicitly allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason. A dismemberment abortion involves tearing the arms and legs off children in the later stages of pregnancy. The dismemberment abortion procedure is the most frequently-used late-term abortion procedure in America and Michigan. The violent nature of the procedure devalues human life and does not reflect Michigan values.

Trump Administration Finalizes Protect Life Rule

On February 22, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services finalized the Protect Life Rule. The rule affects Planned Parenthood’s ability to collect Title X family planning funding. The original Title X law was written to prevent the money from being used to promote abortion, but loose enforcement has allowed Planned Parenthood to collect the money despite their organization’s core mission of abortion. The Protect Life Rule restores a rule from the Reagan Administration that properly enforces the law and makes sure that organizations that don’t do abortions receive the money instead. In order to keep the tens of millions of dollars they collect annually from the program, Planned Parenthood has one year to fully separate their family planning programs from abortion facilities, which often share the same staff and space.

Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the important role of women throughout history. Women have made powerful impacts on society, but we cannot forget the many women that are missing from the world today because of abortion. Many hold up abortion as the foundation of women’s rights, but in reality abortion is a tool of discrimination which has devastated the global female population. One estimate put the number of sex-selection abortions and infanticides globally in recent decades at 163 million, nearly the entire female population of the United States.

Gary Peters, Debbie Stabenow Shrug About Infanticide

Right to Life of Michigan is disgusted by Gary Peters’ and Debbie Stabenow’s votes to filibuster S.130, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. On February 25, 44 Democratic senators voted to filibuster the bill, preventing the bipartisan majority from passing it. The legislation would add specific protections to the 2002 Born Alive Infant Protection Act. It would require that a child born alive after a botched abortion be treated with the same level of care as a premature infant born at the same stage of pregnancy, and that the child be transported to a hospital for proper care.
