Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Takes Proactive Steps to Protect Abortion Rights in the State

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has taken proactive steps to protect abortion rights in the state, passing House Bill 4006 to repeal a 1931 law criminalizing abortion drugs. This was in response to Supreme Court oral arguments in December 2021, when conservative justices signaled their intent to overturn Roe v. Wade. The repeal of the law is a victory for abortion rights advocates in the state, and a sign of Governor Whitmer's commitment to protecting the rights of Michigan citizens.
