End Dismemberment Abortions in Michigan

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 to ban the D&E abortion procedure has been introduced in Michigan adding D&E dismemberment abortions to our state's ban on partial-birth abortion. 

Learn the facts about dismemberment abortions.  We encourage you to share them with your friends and family. Too often the abortion industry hides behind the truth, but now we have the chance to expose the truth to others!

Post Abortion Syndrome

Symptoms of PAS may occur immediately following the abortion, but may also develop years later or come to the surface around the anniversary of the abortion, the expected due date of the baby, and major holidays and celebrations.

When discussing a controversial and emotional issue, it’s important to closely examine our values and the circumstances of the issue. Rape and incest are horrible for a woman to experience, however, abortion is not the solution to her problems.
