Right to Life Michigan et al. v. Whitmer et al.

Docket No.
District Court
Western Michigan


  • Enjoin state from enforcing constitutional provision
  • Invalidate state constitution provision

Litigation Content

Why this Matters 

Plaintiffs challenge a ballot initiative that amended the Michigan constitution to guarantee a right to reproductive freedom. They argue that the state constitutional amendment violates the equal protection clause, the first amendment, the due process clause, and the guarantee clause. Protecting access to reproductive services enables individuals to receive necessary reproductive health care. 

Potential Impact 

Invalidating the constitutional provision will jeopardize access to safe reproductive health services in the state.
