Michigan Medicine statement on the passing of Prop 3, access to abortion care

Michigan Medicine remains dedicated to providing our patients, families and communities with specialized lifesaving and lifechanging reproductive health care, including abortion.

In the months since the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision, our patients faced uncertainty about whether they would be able to continue to turn to University of Michigan Health for all of their reproductive healthcare needs.  With the passage of Proposal 3 we can now assure all people who need our services that we will be there for them.

The past few months have also brought uncertainty to our clinical learners, and we are also pleased that we can continue to provide full-spectrum reproductive health education to students, residents and clinical fellows. Our faculty and staff can also now be assured that they can continue to provide compassionate care without fear of legal prosecution.

Patient safety and wellbeing are and remain our highest priorities, and we are devoted to providing high-quality, safe and compassionate care across all reproductive health needs.
