Why Ban Dismemberment?

Alternatives and Impact

Citizens for Traditional Values is proud to partner with Michigan Right to Life and the Michigan Values Life coalition to work towards ending the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortion in Michigan. We have chosen to give our support fully to the ban on dismemberment abortion because we feel that it is the best option for Michigan. Other legislation and petition language have been proposed that could potentially weaken our current laws and create an environment ripe for legal challenges.

CTV agrees with Former State Senator Patrick Colbeck, who provides an excellent explanation of the reasoning behind why he supports the dismemberment abortion ban. Colbeck asks those who favor the dismemberment ban and those who favor other proposals to remain civil while advising the best course of action for our state.

For a legal analysis, Law Professor William Wagner, presents his case as to why other proposals could hurt existing law and provide opponents to anti-abortion measures with openings to challenge our existing laws.

If you have further questions, feel free to contact our office. We urge anyone who is interested in helping circulate petitions to sign up today to fight for the lives of the unborn.
