No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 238-183 on January 24, 2017, for H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. The Hyde Amendment is annual legislation attached to the budget which prevents your tax dollars from paying directly for most abortions. The legislation now goes to the U.S. Senate for consideration, where it may have a filibuster from the pro-abortion minority of senators.

ACTION NEEDED: Contact Senator Debbie Stabenow and Senator Gary Peters and tell them: "Please support S. 184, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. A majority of Americans oppose our tax dollars being used to pay for abortions."


Stop dismemberment abortions

Protecting unborn children from the brutality of dismemberment abortions is a legislative priority for Michigan. A law is needed because D&E dismemberment abortions are as brutal as the partial-birth abortion method, which is now illegal in Michigan and the United States. Legislation has been introduced in the Michigan House adding D&E dismemberment abortions to our state's ban on partial-birth abortion. Learn more about dismemberment abortions.

ACTION NEEDED: Circulate the Petition to End Dismemberment Abortions. The petition can be found here.


Choose Life license plates in Michigan

On May 16, 2017, the Michigan House Transportation Committee voted 9 to 4 to approve HB 4222, which would create a Choose Life license plate in the state of Michigan. The bill now heads to the floor of the Michigan House for a vote. Sponsored by Representative Shane Hernandzez (and Senator Patrick Colbeck in the Senate), the plate would act as a fundraiser to support women in crisis pregnancies and encourage adoption throughout the state. The legislation was passed by the Michigan Senate on April 27, 2017.

ACTION NEEDED: Contact your state representative and ask them to support HB 4222 to create a Choose Life license plate in Michigan.
