Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan

LANSING — Former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement today blasting Bill Schuette’s plan to ban safe and legal access to abortion in Michigan if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court:

“As a mom, I want my daughters to grow up in a state where women can make their own choices about their bodies. That’s why as governor, I am going to fight like hell to pass state laws that will protect women’s legal right to control their bodies and make their own decisions about whether and when to become a parent. The fate of Roe v. Wade and our constitutional rights are on the line in this election, and there is simply too much at stake for Michigan women to let Bill Schuette anywhere near the governor’s office.”
