Update on access to abortion care services
U-M is very closely monitoring the complicated legal proceedings related to abortion care in the state, including the decisions on Monday in the cases brought by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Planned Parenthood.
Currently, Michigan Medicine will continue to include abortion care in the reproductive health services it provides to patients.
In addition to our commitment to care for our patients, the university’s longstanding policy is to support our employees and learners, which includes providing legal defense for those who might become parties in civil or criminal legal proceedings by virtue of their good-faith efforts to perform their duties.
As President Mary Sue Coleman has said, “I strongly support access to abortion services and I will do everything in my power as president to ensure we continue to provide this critically important care.”
