Abortion in Michigan
Is abortion legal in Michigan?
Let’s be clear, women in the United States still have access to elective abortion. The overturning of Roe VS Wade removes elective abortion as a constitutional right federally and turns the decision over to the lawmakers of the state. Prior to 1973, the individual states made laws regarding abortion. Michigan does allow abortion
Many women who are initially undecided about their pregnancy choice will feel rushed to make an abortion decision. We want to encourage all women, no matter their political stance on abortion, to take the time they need, gather all the facts, work through their true feelings and make a choice based on thorough decision-making process, not panic.
What if I have a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy?
Miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) is a term for when a pregnancy is no longer viable (alive). Ectopic pregnancies (occurring outside of the uterus) are also considered non-viable life. Treatments for miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy have not, and will not, change. Elective abortion promptly ends a viable, growing life. Proper treatment of a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy are separate issues from elective abortion. No matter what the Michigan abortion laws are, women who have miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies and other life-threatening illnesses regarding pregnancy will still be able to obtain life saving treatments and procedures. These procedures are usually offered through a licensed OBGYN or surgeon in a hospital setting.
