Informed Consent for Abortion

In 2022, the Michigan Constitution was amended to guarantee that all people have "a fundamental right to reproductive freedom, which entails the right to make and effectuate decisions about all matters relating to pregnancy, including but not limited to . . . abortion care [and] miscarriage management." 

However, one Michigan statute (MCL 333.17015), requires the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to make specific information available to abortion providers and their patients. MDHHS does not necessarily endorse all the information it is required to make available under this statute.
