All On The Line

Thanks to gerrymandering and an obscure loophole, a special interest-driven effort in Michigan is trying to push through anti-abortion legislation.

As the Washington Post reports, hyperpartisan redistricting has led to more extreme laws countrywide -- the most recent examples being the abortion restrictions passed in states like Georgia and Ohio.

Access to reproductive health care is on the line -- ending gerrymandering will be key to stopping these attacks on abortion. Help All On The Line fight for fair maps in states like Michigan.

Right now, anti-abortion petitioners are exploiting a loophole in Michigan that allows a small group of citizens to work with the legislature to pass bills that are exempt from a governor's veto or a popular vote. And because of gerrymandering, this puts the power back into the hands of Republicans who unfairly hold the majority in the state legislature thanks to manipulated state electoral lines.

Even though Michigan voters elected a Democrat as governor who promised to veto anti-abortion bills, their voices might be overridden by anti-abortion special interest groups taking advantage of manipulated maps.

According to the Washington Post, states passed nine anti-abortion laws from 1973 through 2010. But since 2011, after the last redistricting cycle, that number tripled. In fact, states passed more abortion bans in 2019 alone than the nearly 40 years prior to 2011 redistricting.

Gerrymandering has a direct impact on issues like access to abortion. And it's unacceptable that elected officials have gerrymandered maps to ignore the voices of voters and cater to special interests. Make a donation to AOTL today to defend issues like health care that are on the line.
