Yesterday, we got a lot done for Michiganders. But something happened in the House and Senate that I wanted you to see. Yesterday, members went to the floor to share the stories of women who chose abortion care in Michigan, a right I'm fighting like hell to protect. 🧵
Here’s why that’s important: at the end of the day, policy decisions are about families we are charged with representing. They are about #SomeoneYouLove. It’s the women in these stories, and their families, who will be impacted if our 1931 abortion ban goes into effect.
Whether a woman faces a medically complex pregnancy, such as an ectopic pregnancy, or an assault, or simply can't afford to bring another child into her family, that woman deserves the freedom to decide what's best. Not politicians.

"Today, I rise to remind you that #SomeoneYouLove has had an #abortion.

I had to end a much-wanted pregnancy due to a diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy. There was no chance for the fetus to live, & if no action was taken, I would have died, also." — Sen. @rosemarybayer #MILeg 1/
@rosemarybayer “I’m grateful that Roe was in place so my doctor could do what they needed to do to protect my life and any future life I might create.”

"There are many other reasons to need an #abortion with devastating consequences without having that option — physical health, mental health, financial health — life itself can be at risk if we take this option away. "

Every place and context is different, to be sure. But the things I learned from the Irish and Argentinian campaigns to legalize abortion are absolutely on my mind here and now. /1
In Ireland, for example, the embrace of the 3 c's: care, compassion and change, none of which was choice. This core slogan contextualizes abortion as something a desirable society has - it seizes the moral high ground. Choice emerges from a libertarian - individual frame. /2
