Michigan’s legislation on abortion has a twisty past. Prior to the Roe v. Wade ruling, the Wolverine state had passed a law back in 1931 effectively banning the practice. After the Roe ruling in 1973, this law went dormant. Now that Roe is gone, many prosecuting attorneys in the state have argued that the old law is back in place.
These attorneys face opposition from Michigan state Judge Elizabeth Gleicher and Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer . After the Dobbs ruling , Judge Gleicher granted a preliminary injunction to keep the 1931 from becoming active. The suit was filed by Planned Parenthood of Michigan, according to Townhall.
Gleicher’s injunction stated that the 1931 law “likely violates the Michigan constitution.”
It’s no surprise she reached that conclusion, critics argued. Gleicher has a lengthy track-record regarding abortion advocacy, and has been a regular donor to Planned Parenthood.
Somehow, however, despite this clear bias Gleicher was allowed to preside over the injunction suit. Whitmer has also filed suit in order to keep abortion legal in the state.
Despite these headwinds, local attorneys are determined to curtail the judge’s ruling and follow the 1931 law.
“I do not believe it proper for me to simply ignore a law, any law, that was passed by the Michigan Legislature and signed by the Governor,” Grand Rapids public prosecutor Christopher Becker said in a statement.“I have always held it would be improper for me to pick and choose the laws I wish to enforce that have been validly passed and signed.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
