NEW YORK, NY — Michigan Governor Rick Snyder today signed a bill that could shut down health care centers that provide abortion by mandating extreme licensing rules.
Planned Parenthood led an intensive grassroots campaign to ensure abortion remains safe and legal in the state of Michigan.   Nevertheless, legislators who lost their seats in November because of their positions in favor of restricting women’s health used a lame-duck session to pass this unprecedented package of dangerous legislation. As a result of this out-of-touch lame-duck agenda, Governor Snyder’s approval ratings are plummeting.
Statement by Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund
“This bill was meant to ban abortion in Michigan, and it was pushed through in a lame-duck session by legislators who were voted out of office because of their extreme views on women’s health. 
“Voters sent politicians a very clear message in last month’s election: stay out of women’s health care decisions. Governor Synder should remember that politicians who interfere with women’s health were ousted last month.
“In the meantime, Planned Parenthood is focused on providing quality, affordable health care to the millions of women who rely on it. Planned Parenthood health center doors are open today, and they will be open tomorrow.”
