The pro-abortion lobby is aggressively trying to force abortion-on-demand in all states.

And they have some Democrat allies willing to carry their deadly water.

Now this Governor has repealed a law that could have saved countless lives.

Radical Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) recently signed legislation repealing a popular 2013 pro-life law that restricted health insurance coverage for abortion.

A massive roll back of pro-life legislation

The measure repeals the decade-old Wolverine State statute that said health insurers could only cover abortions through the provision of separate insurance riders.

The move by Whitmer was nothing new for the pro-abortion Democrat.

During her time as minority leader of the Michigan State Senate, Whitmer attacked the law falsely claiming it required women to purchase “rape insurance.” 

She said in the event a woman became pregnant after a sexual assault they would need special insurance to cover the abortion.

At the time Whitmer disclosed her own sexual assault publicly for the first time.

She announced it during her speech against the legislation on December 11, 2013. 

Although Whitmer did not become pregnant from her alleged assault, she said that the issue was “personal to me and so many Michigan women.”

The legislation rolling back the insurance restrictions was just one part of a nine-bill legislative package that removes a number of restrictions on abortion and enshrines the language of the “Reproductive Freedom for All” constitutional amendment, known as Proposal 3, into state law.

Whitmer is proud of increasing the number of deaths in Michigan

“I am proud that in just over 18 months, we have gone from the repeal of Roe v. Wade to expanding reproductive freedom in Michigan with the passage of Proposal 3 and the Reproductive Health Act,” Whitmer said on signing the legislation.

This celebration of the mass killing of the preborn has become a staple in Democrat politics.

The Michigan Catholic Conference criticized the signing of the legislation, saying the measure goes far beyond what the voters were told they were voting for when they enshrined abortion-on-demand into their state constitution in 2022.

Michigan Catholic Conference policy advocate Rebecca Mastee said although voters were told that the new policies would only “restore the status quo of Roe v. Wade, the abortion lobby has leveraged passage of the new constitutional amendment to make Michigan an extreme outlier on abortion policy.”

The new law will greatly increase the number of abortions performed in Michigan even as other states pass strong pro-life laws.

And Whitmer’s actions show Democrats are moving far beyond simply “restoring Roe” and are making every effort to increase abortion-on-demand no matter what.

The pro-abortionists former mantra of “safe, legal, and rare” has now been replaced with “abortion on demand for any reason at any time and paid for by taxpayers.”

The fact is they never wanted abortion to be rare, or safe.
