1931 Law Repealed
On March 2nd, the Michigan House of Representatives voted 58-50 in favor of repealing the 1931 abortion law.
On March 8, the Michigan Senate voted on the house bills that would repeal the 1931 law. In a 20-18 vote, the Senate voted in favor of repealing the law, sending the bills now to Governor Whitmer to sign.
Now nothing stands between Governor Whitmer and the 1931 law being repealed as her whole 2022 campaign made it very clear where she stands.
During floor speeches from the legislators for both the house and senate floor votes, several pro-abortion legislators came forward to comment on why the 1931 law needed to be repealed, all of them promoting abortion on demand for any reason, none of them acknowledging that because of Proposal 3, the 1931 law only restricted abortions after fetal viability. This means that abortion would still have been legal in the same capacity as it was under Roe v. Wade but because that wasn't enough for pro-abortion leaders in Michigan, they voted for abortion up until birth.
The 1931 law also allowed for abortionists to be prosecuted if a woman was injured, but this will also not be the case anymore since the 1931 law is well on its way out of the door.

On January 3rd, the FDA modified the REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy) for the abortion pill. Drugs are labeled with a REMS when they are dangerous and need a specific and closely monitored dispensing program when given to patients. The update essentially allows anybody who has the capacity to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, determine the gestational age of a pregnancy, and perform a surgical abortion to be able to write a prescription for the abortion pill and then have a pharmacy distribute the pill--either in person or by mail.
CVS and Walgreens have already announced that they will distribute Mifepristone, the abortion pill, following the FDA’s recent announcement. There is the risk that other pharmacies will follow suit. This immediately changes your local pharmacy from a health center to an abortion provider!
Mifepristone not only ends the life of an innocent unborn child, it poses significant health risks to women. Dozens of women have died from taking the abortion pill and thousands more have had health complications.
Sign the petition below and let CVS and Walgreens know that women deserve better than to have abortion facilities littering every corner throughout the country.
It is critically important that we respond to the CVS and Walgreens announcements swiftly and seek to limit the pharmacies distributing this dangerous drug in our communities!
