Michigan's Coercive Abortion Prevention Law Information for Patients

Prescreening Summary

A current Michigan statute makes it illegal to coerce a woman to have an abortion.

Other Michigan statutes currently require all abortion providers to ask any woman seeking an abortion if she has been coerced to have the abortion against her will. You will be asked whether you are being coerced to have an abortion at your first visit to the doctor’s office or clinic for an abortion.


Help is available if you are being threatened or intimidated; are being physically, emotionally, or sexually harmed; or feel afraid for any reason.
