On Tuesday, June 12, the most dangerous and sweeping attack on women’s health in our state’s history is expected to come up for a vote in the Michigan House of Representatives. If passed, House Bills 5711, 5712, and 5713 would have a devastating impact on women’s reproductive health and access to abortion services in the state. At the House Health Policy Committee hearing on Thursday, in front of an audience of nearly 100 supporters of women’s health, Committee Chair, Gail Haines, refused to allow any women to testify in opposition.
This legislative assault is being called one of the most extreme in the country. The bills are being rushed through the legislative process to silence objections and we can’t allow that to happen.
As elected officials consider legislation that would have far-reaching, unconscionable consequences, we want to make it loud and clear - WE'RE FIGHTING BACK!
Join us on Tuesday, June 12, to protest the attacks on women's health. We will meet in front of the Capitol Building at 1:00pm. House Session is scheduled to begin at 1:30. Show up in your bright pink!
We will have FREE “Women are Watching…And We Vote” T-shirts!
