(CBS DETROIT) — A Michigan lawmaker is trying to create legal penalties for abortion acts with a 10-year jail sentence and a $100,000 advantageous.
State Rep. Steve Carra (R-Three Rivers) proposed his “Protection at Conception Act,” during which a person can be responsible of manslaughter in the event that they carry out or try and carry out an abortion, “except to save a pregnant woman who is in imminent physical danger that will result in the loss of her life from the pregnancy.”
The measure, launched by Carra on Tuesday, states that anybody manufacturing, distributing or promoting a drug meant to trigger an abortion can be responsible of a felony and sentenced to not more than 20 years.
It additionally clarifies that the particular person requesting the abortion wouldn’t be charged or convicted and permits the sale or use of a contraceptive whether it is administered earlier than a being pregnant might be decided by means of medical testing.
In an announcement on Wednesday, Carra stated the act would make Michigan’s 1931 abortion regulation “enforceable post-Roe v. Wade.”
“This is the most comprehensive pro-life legislation introduced in Michigan and will be legally enforceable,” Carra stated.
Gov. Gretchen is anticipated to veto the measure if handed by Legislature.
