Progress Michigan on Right to Life Shirking Political Process

“It’s unconscionable that Right to Life has launched a campaign against women’s rights by finding a loophole in the law and skirting a signature from the governor,” said Jessica Tramontana, communications director of Progress Michigan. “Right to Life has collected more than 315,000 signatures for legislation that would prohibit insurers from covering abortion in the instance of rape unless women buy an additional rider. The president of Right to Life went as far as describing this extra insurance like buying coverage for a ‘flood or a car accident.’ Rape is not an accident. Women should not be saddled with extra costs for insurance coverage in case they’re a victim of a crime. Right to Life is intentionally circumventing the political process, and it’s shameful.”
