Michigan's Planned Parenthood chapter will still provide abortion services for as long as possible
The court’s decision removes federal protections for abortion and means each state will now determine how it wants to handle access to the procedure.
In Michigan, that means a 1931 law banning abortion in most circumstances could go back into effect, if the current legal challenges against it are defeated.
Dr. Sarah Wallett is the Chief Medical Officer at Planned Parenthood of Michigan.
“Here in Michigan, we are still providing care, and I am working with our team of expert doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to ensure we can provide care to as many patients as possible.”
Dr. Wallett says they will continue to do all they can to protect access to abortion in Michigan.
