Lansing — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Tuesday she would not enforce a state abortion ban if federal protections are overturned, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she would veto any new anti-abortion legislation that reaches her desk.
The first-term Democrats promised a dramatically new approach to abortion and reproductive rights in Michigan during separate speeches at a Planned Parenthood of Michigan conference in Lansing.
“You’ve got a powerful backstop in a veto from my office,” Whitmer said. “But the goal is not just to stop bad things from happening. It’s to set an agenda that respects women and girls and family planning.”
Irresponsible women getting knocked up and owning their choices = bad. “Butchering” infant boys and girls = okay, got it?
Whitmer, Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson make up an “amazing” “triumvirate of women that protect us all in the state,” Planned Parenthood of Michigan CEO Lori Carpentier said during an introduction.
It’s sad to witness what an effeminate society our nation has deteriorated into, nevertheless, presenting Exhibit A.
For a traffic stop?🤦♂️ Watching such things, which are common events today, I struggle to relate with it as being reality. In my youth we were raised to be respectful not only to police officers but, also our elders. Perhaps, today that’s why garbage like this happens. Imagine if the officer said to the precious snowflake, “here’s your ticket, you f****** a******.”?
Their parents failed them, and being very generous using it in the sense of a plural. At age 20, and still doing childish ‘muh feelz’ based garbage like that in public, then record yourself doing it – one can tell there wasn’t a male present in the household.
Alas! The DetNews highlights just how reprehensible the Bolshevist union of an offspring of the insurance lobby (Whitmer), and radical lesbian Nessel ✡️, has unfolded for Michiganians.
But new Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised on the campaign trail to shut down Line 5, and she’s allowing that ill-considered vow to get in the way of sound policy.
Whitmer teamed with Attorney General Dana Nessel to block the work by declaring the tunnel unconstitutional.
Nessel’s opinion, issued last week, is that the law approving the deal violates the state constitution because its title doesn’t reflect what’s actually in the bill. That semantical objection seems an iffy legal stance, considering that so many laws in Michigan bear lofty titles that have little connection to their contents.
*Think* the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: it did the exact opposite.
But it was enough for Whitmer, who seized the ruling to order preparations for the tunnel work to cease.
This will surely end up in court. The Republican-controlled Legislature won’t stand by while the new Democratic administration usurps its lawmaking authority, nor should it.
SML Shirkey, Speaker Chatfield, I do believe you have your marching orders.
Ps. when it comes to Line 5 transporting daily 540,000 barrels of light crude oil and synthetic petroleum, 65% of the propane used in the Upper Peninsula, and 55% used statewide, methinks, someone takes the matter at hand a wee too nonchalantly.
