Reproductive Freedom for All Ballot Initiative

Led by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, ACLU of Michigan and Michigan Voices, the Reproductive Freedom For All (RFFA) ballot initiative seeks to amend the Michigan state constitution to permanently and explicitly protect reproductive freedom.
 

In addition to protecting abortion access, the ballot measure would protect a range of reproductive freedoms. This includes:

  • The right to safe and respectful care during birth 

  • The right to use or refuse temporary or permanent birth control

  • Protection against prosecution for pregnancy outcomes (miscarriage, etc)
     

The best way for volunteers to get involved is to join the Reproductive Freedom for All Ballot campaign to amend Michigan’s state constitution and permanently protect abortion access in Michigan.

Share Your Story 

Story collection is a powerful communications and organizing tactic demonstrating the urgent necessity of access to reproductive, sexual, and preventive health care.

 

Storytellers enable others to understand who they are and why it’s important to take action to protect our rights and access. Facts can only get you so far, we need people to empathize with these issues and how they impact real life people.

 

We, at Planned Parenthood, are privileged to hear amazing stories from our patient advocates and supporters all the time. Now, we are asking you to share your story! Please consider sharing with us.

Was Planned Parenthood there for you when you needed medical care? Did you have an awesome volunteer experience with us? Did reproductive issues spur you to political action? Will you be personally impacted by proposed legislation? 

 

Tell us about it! Share your story below.

If you are under 18 you need parental consent to share your story. Please email volunteer@ppmi.org for instructions on how to get parental consent and submit your story.
