“The framework of this bill is what we’re working towards in every state,” said Dustin Curtis, SFLAction Executive Director. “We’re glad to partner with Rep. Carra to introduce this bill in Michigan as he’s been a strong pro-life fighter. We look forward to the Michigan State House progressing this package designed to be the best way to enshrine life in law as we prepare to protect the preborn and women in a post-Roe America.”
LANSING, M.I., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (06-22-2022) – Students for Life Action (SFLAction) is pleased to continue working with pro-life leaders in Michigan such as State Representative Steve Carra who introduced a comprehensive SFLAction-inspired bill to protect the preborn from abortion and women from dangerous Chemical Abortion pills. The Protection at Conception Act takes a bold approach to save preborn babies by combining Life at Conception and Banning Chemical Abortion laws into one package.
This bill marks the first time SFLAction has worked with legislators to introduce both pieces of legislation together. It is part of SFLAction’s broader strategy to protect the preborn in law in every state as Roe v. Wade faces a likely reversal at the Supreme Court. Notably, this bill will stop the corporate abortionists getting rich off the 30,000 abortions committed in Michigan annually and start saving preborn lives.
“This is the most comprehensive pro-life legislation introduced in Michigan and will be legally enforceable,” said Rep. Carra. “Over 63 million children have lost their lives to abortion since Roe v. Wade, the time for cheap talk is over and the time for action is now.”
“The framework of this bill is what we’re working towards in every state,” said Dustin Curtis, SFLAction Executive Director. “We’re glad to partner with Rep. Carra to introduce this bill in Michigan as he’s been a strong pro-life champion. We look forward to the Michigan State House progressing this package designed to be the best way to enshrine life in law as we prepare to protect the preborn and women in a post-Roe America.”
Michigan’s 1931 law, which was intended to criminalize Chemical Abortion pills which make up half of abortions, has been made void since Roe’s fatal ruling. SFLAction has filed two amicus briefs in Michigan to fight back on anti-life laws orchestrated by Governor Whitmer. Rep. Carra’s bill would update the 1931 law and mirror provisions in Oklahoma law where abortion is only legal in the case of saving a woman’s life.
