Veto Letter to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder: House Bill 5711
Read the Center for Reproductive Rights’ letter to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder urging him to veto House Bill 5711 which would impose unnecessary, medically inappropriate and harmful regulations on the provision of abortion services in the state. The regulations require reproductive health providers to make numerous changes to their staffing, equipment, and physical facilities—all for purely political reasons. Such changes might be difficult or impossible to comply with and could result in the closure of safe, reliable health care providers across the state. The bill also discriminates against low-income and rural women seeking safe, legal, medication abortions through telemedicine.
