LANSING, Mich., July 11, 2022 — Organizers for the Reproductive Freedom for All petition delivered signatures to the Bureau of Elections today. The petition would amend the Michigan Constitution to ensure that no one goes to prison for providing safe medical care as well as ensure access to a broad range of reproductive health care, including abortion State Rep. Lori Stone (D-Warren) issued the following statement on the delivery of the signatures:

“For decades, Roe v. Wade granted abortion rights, and now that it’s been overturned by the Supreme Court, these rights will be decided by the states. Reproductive rights are in jeopardy in Michigan due to the 1931 abortion ban. The Reproductive Freedom for All petition seeks to establish and secure these rights and more. The petition enshrines bodily autonomy and the privacy to make deeply personal medical decisions and is apparently well-supported by Michiganders speaking loud and clear on Reproductive Freedom for All with the historic number of signatures. I commend the work and time each and every individual has dedicated for Michigan.”
