baby feetMichigan pro-lifers have two options left to fight against the veto of a telemed abortion ban. 

Outgoing Governor Rick Snyder vetoed the bill saying it would burden women, especially in rural areas, in obtaining "health care" for women.

Chris Gast of Right to Life of Michigan says pro-life activists have spent eight years attempting to cooperate with but not "antagonize" Gov. Rick Snyder.

"We were able to get a couple of things done," Gast advises, "but as you can see here when [Snyder] didn't feel any pressure to live up to his words, that he ran as a pro-life candidate, then his true colors were on display."

Citizen-initiated petition drives can be used to let Michigan citizens decide the life issue in a future election, he says, but the most important approach is to reach out to rural areas about the dangers of abortion pills.

"The FDA knows of 22 women that have died after taking RU 486," he says of the abortion pill. "We know that abortion facilities do horrible follow-ups so most of these pills usually involve some sort of serious side effects including bleeding."

Snyder claimed that women in rural areas, without telemed abortions, would experience a burden in obtaining services because there are no abortion providers. But pro-lifers counter that women living in those areas already travel mostly to Detroit to existing abortion clinics.
