Michigan GOP candidate for governor James Craig is an anti-Choice extremist

Michigan GOP candidate for governor James Craig is an anti-Choice extremist

If I were a betting guy, I’d wager that most voters in Michigan have never heard of a man named James Craig. He’s the former Detroit police chief and he’s been stumbling out of the gate for the 2022 governor’s race on a nearly continuous basis for almost all of 2020, vying to be the Republican nominee. For the most […]

TAKE ACTION! –> Why “Dems for Life” miss the mark (and betray our progressive values)

TAKE ACTION! –> Why “Dems for Life” miss the mark (and betray our progressive values)

The following post was written by Dana Sutton, a digital organizer for Progress Michigan. In an era where our access to reproductive health care is under constant attack from the GOP, the last thing we need is Democrats carrying water for the anti-abortion cause.

BECOMING GILEAD – Abortion bans in America by state

BECOMING GILEAD – Abortion bans in America by state

As has becoming glaringly obvious, the forced birth lobby in America has been operating in a well-coordinated fashion to end the legal right of women to seek an abortion. Like the Sons of Jacob in A Handmaid’s Tale, they want to take away a woman’s right to control her own reproductive decisions and hand those decisions over to misogynistic religious […]

Bill “Shady” Schuette, candidate for Michigan governor, continues to use our tax dollars to pursue his far-right extremist agenda

Michigan Radio has a post up titled “Michigan signs on in support of federal effort to deny abortions to undocumented minors“. In truth, this is being done solely by our extremist, far-right conservative Attorney General, Bill “Shady” Schuette. Schuette, who has been running for governor for over a decade, has a long sordid history of using Michigan tax dollars to […]

Michigan GOP enacts laws to make selling fetal tissue MORE illegal and to ban local plastic bag regulations

Michigan GOP enacts laws to make selling fetal tissue MORE illegal and to ban local plastic bag regulations

Apparently things are just fine in Michigan because Republicans here have resorted to (a) making something illegal more illegal and (b) to restricting local municipalities from passing local regulations for their community. So much for “local control”. The first bill makes the sale of fetal tissue resulting from abortions more illegal. I say it makes it “more illegal” because it’s […]

Possibly the worst thing ever said in a presidential debate

Possibly the worst thing ever said in a presidential debate

Immediately followed by one of the best It’s been a week since the last debate, but the horror of Donald Trump’s answer on reproductive rights is still sinking in. As Republicans have trained themselves to do, Fox News’ Chris Wallace focused the question of abortion on something that doesn’t exist — partial-birth abortion. “I think it’s terrible if you go […]
