MI House plan includes $20 million to support pregnant mothers, babies | News

LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) – The Michigan House Appropriations Committee said the House has approved a proposed Republican plan that includes money to protect babies and support pregnant mothers.

It said the House plan for the Department of Health and Human Services budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 includes an investment of about $20 million to increase access to prenatal and postnatal care. The committee said the plan would also provide other vital services, and promote adoption.

Earlier in the week, the journalism company Politico reported on an unprecedented leak of a U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion that suggested Roe v. Wade will be struck down. The decision that dates back to 1973 grants the right to abortion. 

Michigan has a 1931 law in place that would ban abortions if the Supreme Court ruling is overturned.

The Michigan House Appropriations Committee said its proposed plan was designed to prevent abortion providers from receiving state or federal funds. Supporters described the plan as urgent and necessary.

Back in April, Governor Gretchen Whitmer filed a lawsuit against prosecutors in 13 counties with an abortion clinic. She is seeking a ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court to declare abortion legal under state law.

As for the leaked documents, the U.S. Supreme Court said the draft opinion was not a final opinion. It was expected to give a final opinion by the end of June.
