News Update

  • Reproductive Freedom for All, At What Cost?

    Did You Know...

    • ...that in MICHIGAN a PARENTS RIGHT to PROTECT their CHILDRENis assured by Law?
    • ...that any medical practitioner is required by law to get consent from a parent or guardian before providing medical care to a minor unless that minor gets a court order to authorize care?
    • ...that the proposed “Reproductive Freedom” Michigan Constitutional Amendment has two ambiguous statements that could


     Any law or regulation cannot “infringe on an individual’s autonomous decision making” and  “Every individual has a fundamental right to reproductive freedom”

    Remember, this amendment would allow a possible surgical or medical abortion or chemical or surgical sex change therapy without the parent’s consent or evenknowledge...and the parents would have no legal recourse to hold those accountable for the harm to their child.

    People have varying views, but this is just morally wrong.

    We need to make sure everyone understands that we as Catholics value and protect life from womb to tomb.
