Campaign for Reproductive Justice

A decision about having a baby or having an abortion is a deeply personal, private decision best left to a woman, her family, and her doctor. Yet some politicians remain obsessed with interfering.

Abortion is one of the most common medical procedures performed today, and it’s incredibly safe. But laws that make it difficult if not impossible for a woman to get an abortion if she needs one, particularly if she is poor, are increasing at an alarming pace.

Decline to Sign the Petition

In Michigan, Right to Life and the Catholic Conference have just begun a petition drive in an attempt to do an end-run around SB 395, the "legal birth definition act" – legislation vetoed by Governor Granholm last October.

Supporters of this initiative mischaracterize this as a ban on so-called “partial birth abortions,” an emotive and deceptive term invented by anti-choice activists, but the bill does not identify a particular abortion procedure and would outlaw even 1st and 2nd trimester abortions.
