Right to Life of Michigan says it’s about halfway to its goal of collecting 400,000 signatures on a petition to ban an abortion procedure known as dilation and evacuation.

At the 1980 Republican National Convention in Detroit, Republican candidate Ronald Reagan accepted the party’s nomination for president.

MichMash - Canvassers

Jun 21, 2019

Two groups want to collect signatures for anti-abortion measures in Michigan. The Board of State Canvassers recently approved the forms and summaries of those petitions.

As part of the weekly series MichMash, Cheyna Roth and Jake Neher talk about the role of the Board of State Canvassers in the petition process - and why it’s such an unusual body in Lansing.

Michigan voters could soon be asked if they want to sign two anti-abortion ballot initiatives. A state board approved parts of two potential ballot measures Wednesday.
