I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)With a mandatory petition drive over, a Michigan pro-life group is now taking on its governor and starting a lengthy process to overturn her veto.

Michigan lawmakers passed a law banning the practice of dismemberment abortions but Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed it.

Right to Life of Michigan then launched a petition drive to overturn the veto, and spokesman Chris Gast says approximately 374,000 signatures were obtained to ensure enough are legal and allowable.

Once those petitions are reviewed, they will be shipped to the Bureau of Elections in Lansing to verify signatures.

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood, meanwhile, is expected to challenge the signatures in an attempt to shut down the pro-life push, which could drag out the grassroots effort by several weeks.

“And when that all finally works itself out,” Gast explains, “then it'll be sent to the legislature where they'll get to pass it into law.”

Dismemberment abortions do exactly what it sounds like: the abortionist takes the fetus apart limb by limb, which is done in second and third trimester abortions.
