The Legal Status of Abortion in the US

Prop 3 protects abortion and reproductive rights in Michigan: On Tuesday, Nov. 8, Prop 3 passed in Michigan, protecting an individual right to reproductive freedom and abortion care in the Michigan State Constitution.

"Proposal 3’s passage marks an historic victory for abortion access in our state and in our country – and Michigan has paved the way for future efforts to restore the rights and protections of Roe v. Wade nationwide."

Reproductive Freedom spokesperson Darci McConnell

“On June 24, 2022, the US Supreme Court decided to annul the case of Roe v. Wade. With this ruling, the Court leaves it to States to determine the right to abortion – some have expanded the right while others have enacted strict measures to regulate the procedure.”

Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are places that masquerade as health clinics, misinform people about their medical options, and try to prevent people from getting abortions, often from an anti-choice, heavily Christian, and anti-feminist view.

CPCs are often not medical facilities or health clinics; their staff is often not medical professionals. CPCs try to intimidate and mislead people into parenting and adoption routes rather than abortion: they provide partial or misleading information and they do not provide patients with a full range of services and information for reproductive health care.

CPCs often establish an office or mobile van near actual abortion clinics in an effort to intercept those patients. 

Here are some articles and videos about CPCs and how to identify them:
