Tomorrow’s Visit is a “Charade” to Scare Voters into Thinking Abortion “Rights” at Risk

“The Vice President’s visit to Grand Rapids is part of a coordinated election year charade to mislead voters with a fantasy that abortion access in Michigan is somehow at risk. The facts are to the contrary. A woman in Michigan can have an abortion for any reason, at any point in her pregnancy. There is absolutely nothing that can be done in our state legislature to change that reality. Also, there is no path forward in Congress to pass any sort of a national ‘ban’ as it is being called, which is actually just a gestational limit on the window of time in which a woman could have an abortion,” stated Right to Life of Michigan President, Amber Roseboom.

Roseboom continued, “Michigan women beware! At stake now are common-sense protections for women, parents, and children. Let’s not forget that just last fall, Governor Whitmer and her allies in our state legislature removed long-standing, basic health and safety standards for abortion clinics to appease the big money abortion-only special interests that fund their campaigns. Abortion-extremist Democrats have also announced their intention to remove parental consent for a minor seeking an abortion and strip a woman’s right to know about the risks associated with abortion by removing informed consent.”

“The Democrats have nothing to offer voters but empty abortion-only rhetoric since polls demonstrate voters believe they have failed on border security, inflation, the economy and jobs. Michigan women are savvy enough to see through this Harris/Whitmer charade.”
