Lawmaker Wants to Amend Michigan Constitution to Outlaw Abortion

State Rep. Jim Slezak, D-Davison Twp., has authored a proposed state constitutional amendment that would essentially outlaw abortion in Michigan.

The amendment would say every person has a right to life, and would define "person" as a human being whose life begins at conception.

A resolution in support of the amendment was introduced by Slezak last week, and is supported by 22 other lawmakers, including state Rep. Paul Scott, R-Grand Blanc.
