Michigan, California And Kentucky Vote For Pro–Abortion Rights Amendment


The measure’s passage comes just over four months after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that legalized abortion nearly 50 years ago. As states across the country enacted bans on the medical procedure, abortion access in Michigan was left in the hands of the courts. A judge declared one 1931 state law banning the procedure without exceptions as unconstitutional, but without action by voters, it was unclear whether abortion would remain legal.

Pushing his sleeping newborn twins in a stroller as he exited a polling place in downtown Detroit with his spouse on Tuesday afternoon, Tyler Jones told BuzzFeed News that he voted “yes” on Proposal 3.

The couple had supported abortion rights before they had children, but people told them they’d feel the “exact opposite” after having kids, Jones said. “Well, we had kids, and we still felt the same way,” he said. ●
