Michigan Group Launches Ballot Drive for Abortion Ban After 1st Heartbeat

A group in the state just launched a ballot drive to ban abortions after a heartbeat is detected in a fetus.

It’s not yet in the state’s Legislature, but with a few hundred thousand signatures the initiative could make its way to Lansing.

The Michigan Heartbeat Coalition is pushing the anti-abortion measure.

It’s the second committee to do so after a Right to Life-backed group sought to prohibit a second-trimester procedure last week.

Abortion opponents disagree on the measure though, with Right to Life supporters afraid it could interfere with the battle to overturn Roe v. Wade nationally.
