Proposition 3 Passes, Carving Abortion Rights into the Michigan Constitution

Let us tell you that one hundred and thirty-seven days after the US Supreme Court pushed abortion rights back to the states,

The Michiganers made their decision.

Proposition 3, the ballot measure for a constitutional "right to reproductive freedom",

The one that broke state records for signature and campaign donations will pass, the Associated Press estimated at 3:25 a.m.

The 'yes' votes were rising from 55.6% to 44.4% when the AP called it out.

Let us tell you that Proposition 3 was the most expensive ballot measurement battle in Michigan history.

Because the campaign finances report two weeks before the election the two sides combined had more than $50 million.

The measure also broke the Michigan record for most signatures submitted for a constitutional amendment proposal,

Because leaders signed more than 750,000 in July.
