LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Three media outlets ran a story on Thursday which showed unborn babies reacting to “various smells and tastes before they are born.”

CBS News, The Guardian, and The Today Show ran the story.

The reaction shows the cognitive dissonance that often pops up in the abortion debate – unborn babies cannot be simultaneously human and expendable.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade in June and returned abortion regulations to the states, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vowed to “fight like hell” for the right to legal abortion in the state.

Whitmer has filed numerous lawsuits to keep the state’s 1931 abortion ban from kicking in, and several judges have placed temporary injunctions on the ban to keep prosecutors from legally charging abortion providers.

Those temporary injunctions will likely remain in place until at least November 8. That’s when Michigan voters will decided whether to approve Proposal 3.

In short, Proposal 3 would enshrine the right to abortion up until the moment of birth in the state constitution.

David Kallman, an attorney representing several prosecutors in the court cases currently stymied by injunctions, said that description only scratches the surface.

“The new right to reproductive freedom ‘includ[es], but is not limited to, prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum care, contraception, sterilization, abortion care, miscarriage management, and infertility care,’” Kallman wrote this week. “This means courts will inevitably expand the definition of what sexual practices and other conduct will be protected by this new ‘right.'”

Early voting starts on September 29 in Michigan. The general election is November 8.
