Vote for Life

Score One for the BabiesPolitics are messy. Although the stakes for upsetting people are high, the stakes for failing to get prolife legislation passed means missed opportunities to save lives. There are no higher stakes.

Prolife issues are not like other political issues. People live or die when faced with abortion, infanticide, doctor-assisted suicide, or euthanasia. In every election, voters face these life-or-death issues, and candidates at every level can impact prolife issues.

We must start with Life at the ballot box to restore legal protection for every person.

Voting prolife saves babies.

Elective, tax-funded abortions were banned in Michigan in 1988. The next year abortions dropped by 10,190 and tens of thousands of lives have been saved since then.

Voting prolife protects women.

Prolife legislators revised state health and safety regulations for abortion clinics in 2012, after which 15 abortion clinics closed in Michigan, most for failing to meet basic sanitation and safety standards.

Voting prolife protects you.

In 2013, Michigan citizens initiated legislation to stop their tax dollars from paying for abortion insurance in Obamacare, and prolife legislators voted it into law.

Voting prolife creates real change.

With the Roe v. Wade case, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized nationwide abortion-on-demand, through all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason. Nearly half a century later, on June 24, 2022, this egregious decision was overturned in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.

This was a monumental accomplishment, as Supreme Court precedents are rarely overturned. That great victory was due to the steadfast perseverance of prolife people, who continued to vote for prolife candidates, who appointed prolife justices, who interpreted the constitution rather than legislated from the bench.

Voting prolife would have prevented the passage of Proposal 3.

The citizens of Michigan voted 56% – 43% to pass Proposal 3 on November 8, 2022. This ballot initiative enshrined a “right to abortion” in the Michigan Constitution. This constitutional amendment allows for abortion until the moment of birth for any reason. Additionally, it rescinded many prolife laws that protected women and babies.

Voting prolife would have prevented the Reproductive Health Act.

With a pro-abortion majority voted into office in the Michigan House, Michigan Senate, and the governor’s office, the Reproductive Health Act was signed into law on November 21, 2023. This law repealed many commonsense laws such as clinic licensing, humane disposal of fetal remains, priority funding for family planning money not going to abortion providers, abortion reporting, abortion complication reporting, the abortion insurance opt-out law, the prohibition on partial-birth abortion, enhanced penalties for late-term abortions, and the prohibition on abortion referrals from college parenting offices.
