Whitmer Releases Plan to Protect Roe v. Wade in Michigan - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON JULY 24, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Releases Plan to Protect Roe v. Wade in Michigan DETROIT — Today former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer released her plan to protect and expand women’s reproductive rights by enshrining Roe v. Wade protections in state law. With the fate of Roe vs. Wade hanging in the balance with Donald Trump’s Supreme Court appointment, Whitmer’s plan will repeal the 1931 law that criminalizes abortion and reinstate funding for family planning. Read the plan here. “The stakes in this election couldn’t be higher for Michigan women and families,” said Whitmer. “As Governor, I will work fiercely to defend the rights of every Michigan woman, including women’s access to all forms of reproductive care and contraception. I am going to fight like hell to pass state laws that will protect women’s legal right to control their bodies and make their own decisions about whether and when to become a parent. The fate of Roe v. Wade and our constitutional rights are on the line in this election, and there is simply too much at stake for Michigan women to let Bill Schuette anywhere near the governor’s office.” “We can’t change the minds of people like Bill Schuette about whether women should have safe and legal access to all forms of reproductive care, but we sure can change where they sit,” said Lori Carpentier, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan. “Michigan women need a governor who will stand up and protect our rights. Gretchen Whitmer has a real plan to protect Roe v. Wade in state law, and she’s the only candidate in this race who actually knows how to get it done.” Whitmer’s plan includes: Repealing PA 328 of 1938, which criminalizes abortion and labels family planning medical professionals as felons. Restore family planning funding for low-income Michiganders that was cut by Governor Snyder and Lansing Republicans. Repealing Michigan’s “rape insurance” law. Requiring insurance companies to cover 365-day supplies of covered prescription contraceptives. Removing the 24-hour waiting period for an abortion. Ensuring health facilities cannot refuse to provide reproductive health services if withholding them would result in health risks. Fixing our burdensome and ineffective sexual education laws. Whitmer has also released plans to clean up Michigan’s drinking water, improve education and skills training, create more good-paying jobs, fix Michigan’s infrastructure and make state government more open, transparent and accountable. ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan Next Post   Whitmer Releases Plan to Fight Urban Poverty Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

Michigan Firefighters: Bill Schuette is Bad for Retirees - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 4, 2018 BY ZACK POHL Michigan Firefighters: Bill Schuette is Bad for Retirees DETROIT – Today the President of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union Mark Docherty issued the following statement commenting on Bill Schuette’s record of supporting the Retirement Tax on Michigan seniors: “Bill Schuette can’t hide from his record of giving tax breaks to his wealthy friends at the expense of hardworking Michigan families. The tax plan Schuette supported in 2011 included the Retirement Tax, which has cost seniors who worked hard their whole lives thousands in new taxes they can’t afford. Schuette even said that plan was ‘great news for Michiganders.’ No matter how hard he tries to rewrite his record, Michigan firefighters know that Bill Schuette is bad for retirees, bad for our families, and bad for Michigan.” Former Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer has been endorsed by the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union, the Michigan Association of Police Organizations, and the Michigan Fraternal Order of Police.
