"...Facing More Than Just a Class War"

"The state of Michigan has been receiving a fair bit of national attention lately, as newly-elected Governor Rick Snyder pushes forward shockingly anti-union, anti-working class legislation, some of which makes Governor Scott Walkers bill in Wisconsin look tame by comparison. Ive been on the front lines of the burgeoning movement here--particularly focused on building a more united left-- while also working to organize this months upcoming Walk For Choice in Detroit.

Senate Bill 13 would alter statutory law such that The word individual shall be construed to mean a natural person and to include a fetus. House Bill 4433 would provide stricter guidelines for pre-abortion ultrasounds, mandating that an ultrasound be performed no fewer than two hours prior to the beginning of an abortion procedure, and requiring specifically that The physician or qualified person assisting the physician shall ensure that the ultrasound screen is turned toward the patient to allow her to easily view the active ultrasound image of the fetus (while still insisting that this constitutes giving women an option to view the ultrasound), as well as mandating that the most high-tech and visually accurate ultrasound possible be used. Particularly frightening when considering these proposals is the high level of support for anti-abortion measures in Michigans current state government: 76 percent of the Senate is anti-choice or mixed, and 71 percent of the House is anti-choice, mixed, or unknown.
