In response to public concern about the ethics of the Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccines involving the use of tissue from aborted babies, RLM helped place informed consent language within a pandemic relief supplemental bill, which was signed by Governor Whitmer. Unfortunately, the provision was only regarding the Johnson and Johnson vaccine and Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) which has now lapsed.
RLM joined other organizations in submitting an amicus curae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court asking them to overturn Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The Court heard oral arguments in December, leading many observers to predict that Roe v. Wade was in danger.
The FDA changed regulations on abortion pills in December, allowing distribution through the mail.
