State Rep. Beau LaFave today lambasted Governor Whitmer for taking legal action to legalize all abortions from the time of conception to the time before birth in Michigan.
The suit, filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court, asks the court to declare a constitutional right to kill the unborn child. In response, LaFave will file his own lawsuit in defense of Michigan’s pro-life law.
“I plan to take legal action to defend the strongest pro-life law in the nation against the predators of radicals like Gretchen Whitmer and Planned Parenthood,” said LaFave, of Iron Mountain. “I have always sought to protect the sanctity of human life. Every human life is worth fighting for.
Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case involves a Mississippi law generally banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and could lead the court to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, who asserted a constitutionally guaranteed right to abortion.
Lawmakers from 35 states, including Rep. LaFave of Michigan, submitted an “amicus curiae” brief to Dobbs, saying the court had previously invented an alleged abortion right that is not found in the Constitution. Rep. LaFave said the rulings interfered with the constitutional power of the people’s representatives to pass laws to protect the people of their states, including preventing abortion.
