There was a hearing in the House Appropriations Committee this morning on House Bill 4145, sponsored by Rep. Thomas Hooker (R), which would restrict a woman’s access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare. It would prohibit State of Michigan family planning funding from going to providers that offer abortion services. The primary goal of the bill is to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization committed to ensuring that women and families in our state have access to the quality, affordable healthcare they need and deserve.

Planned Parenthood has continually been the target of religious zealots like Right to Life and Republicans like Rep. Hooker who want to control women’s reproductive decisions.
