Counseling Ban/Gag Rule

State Department of Community Health funds for pregnancy-prevention programs shall not be used to provide abortion counseling or referrals.  2010 Mich. Pub. Acts 187.

The Department of Community Health must give priority in allocation of family planning and reproductive-health-services funds to entities that do not provide elective abortion services, refer for abortion services, or have a policy that abortion is considered part of a continuum of reproductive-health services.  Elective abortion is defined as abortion not necessary to preserve a woman's life due to a physical condition of the woman.  Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. § 333.1091 (Enacted 2002).
