A Radical Proposal


The Reproductive Freedom for All constitutional amendment is not about reproductive freedom, which already exists. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU’s amendment would radically distort Michigan’s Constitution to create a new unlimited right to abortion, which would spill over and affect many other issues.

This poorly-worded amendment would repeal dozens of state laws, including our state’s ban on tax-funded abortions, the partial-birth abortion ban, and fundamentally alter the parent-child relationship by preventing parents from having input on their children’s health.

Current Status

 

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU's petition form was not approved at the February 11 Board of State Canvassers meeting because it did not meet required font sizes. Approval is not technically required to collect signatures, and their coalition announced they began collecting signatures on March 6. They sought to have their petition approved again at the March 23 Board of State Canvassers meeting, but that form was rejected for language that didn’t conform to state law. They were able to get conditional approval for a new petition with proper language, but they will have to throw out all of the signatures using the illegal petitions. They may pursue a lawsuit to allow the invalid signatures.

Currently, the petition is being circulated by volunteers and paid circulators who are focusing on college campuses, farmers markets, and post offices. Due to the U.S. Supreme Court breach that leaked a draft opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, pro-abortion volunteers and circulators have increased and will likely continue to do so throughout the summer. We have seen an increase in events and rallies held by the pro-abortion groups and the RFFA coalition.

In order for their constitutional amendment to appear on the November ballot they must:

• Collect 425,059 valid signatures from Michigan voters
• Submit the signatures by July 11
