Good news from Michigan
In an earlier post I pointed out that Michigan’s state legislature had intervened against the will of the electorate and refused to allow abortion rights to be enshrined in the state. Today the Lege was overruled by the state Supreme Court and the measure will be on the ballot after all.
BREAKING: Michigan Supreme Court in a 5-2 decision ordered the Reproductive Freedom For All measure placed on the ballot after the Board of State Canvassers deadlocked. This measure will enshrine abortion rights into the state’s Constitution (irrevocable by SCOTUS OR Congress).

It’s not over yet, as there needs to be a final vote, but at least it seems like the voters will have their say.
