Volunteers make Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law possible

Michigan prolife advocates recently celebrated a significant victory, the passage of the citizen-initiated Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act.

Because of Roe and Doe some do not have the right to opportunities, the right to live and breathe and grow and laugh and love and be a part of this crazy place we call the world.
