Via FOX 2:
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has signed a new directive on reproductive healthcare protections, which instructs departments within the state government to ignore requests from other states looking to prosecute women for seeking abortion-related services.
The governor’s directive, announced Wednesday, was written in the shadow of an expected ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court that strikes down Roe V. Wade, the ruling that legalizes abortion across the country.
The directive orders any departments “not to cooperate” with authorities of any state investigating someone for “obtaining, providing, or assisting someone else to provide reproductive healthcare that is legal where the health care is provided.”
Additionally, Whitmer also instructed departments to look for any possibilities to grow protection for reproductive health care, such as increasing choices for mental, physical, and reproductive health.
