    (Information contained in the Right To Life of Michigan press release dated: July 30, 2021)

    Lansing, MI - - Yesterday, Right to Life of Michigan filed an amicus curiae brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Supreme Court will likely hear oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case in the fall.

    Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “In 1972, Michigan voters determined our state’s law protecting unborn children should stand. Just weeks later, their vote was overturned by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Democracy is threatened every time unelected judges overstep their bounds and overturn legitimate election results.”
