LANSING, Michigan (LifeSiteNews) – Tulsi Gabbard, the former U.S. Representative for Hawaii who recently left the Democrats, has called on Michigan residents to oppose Proposal 3 on today’s ballot, since it would change the state Constitution, allowing partial birth and late term abortions for any reason.
“I urge Michigan residents to protect women, parental rights & children by voting against Proposal 3 that includes loopholes to allow late-term/partial birth abortion (which is really infanticide) & overturns law to inform parents of a child pursuing abortion/hormone therapies,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter.

Proposal 3 “amends the state Constitution … overturning a law that requires abortion facilities to be licensed and inspected for the health and safety of women,” Gabbard said.
During a gubernatorial debate with staunchly pro-abortion Governor Gretchen Whitmer, pro-life candidate Tudor Dixon also called on voters to oppose Prop 3.
“It’s unfortunate that we’re not being honest about what Proposal 3 is,” Dixon said. “We know that Proposal 3 does remove parental consent. It also makes it so that you don’t have to be a doctor to perform an abortion, but it does align with her [Whitmer’s] agenda. Her past — she’s voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion, and Proposal 3 allows abortion up to the moment of birth for any reason, including sex selection.”
Dixon denounced the proposal as “the most radical abortion law in the entire country.”
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Pope Francis has appointed outspoken pro-abortion economist Mariana Mazzucato to be one of the new “Ordinary Academicians” for the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV).
In addition to being a speaker at the World Economic Forum – the globalist group behind the socialist, anti-Christian “Great Reset” agenda – Mazzucato is enthusiastically pro-abortion, in direct contradiction to unchangeable teaching of the Catholic Church!
SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - the unborn deserve champions of life, not death!
So good! https://t.co/cw2ujmXRbT— Mariana Mazzucato (@MazzucatoM) June 25, 2022
Mazzucato’s appointment contradicts the PAV’s statutes. While the statutes say that members can be of any religion, new Academicians must “commit themselves to promoting and defending the principles regarding the value of life and the dignity of the human person, interpreted in a way consonant with the Church’s Magisterium.”
Mazzucato’s appointment was defended not only by the PAV, but by Francis himself. In an interview on Sunday, November 6th, the Pope confirmed that he had personally picked the pro-abortion economist as an addition to institution: “And now I have put Marianna Mazzucato in the Pontifical Academy for Life. She is a great economist from the United States. I put her there to give a little more humanity to it.”
Pope Francis’ appointment of one who is so radically against the precepts of the Church causes nothing but confusion for the Faithful – this is a source of scandal.
SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - this scandal in the Church must stop!
In a time where leftist elites are continually attacking Christian values, we need strong pro-life and pro-family warriors to champion Catholic values in the public square. Mazzucato is NOT the person who should be on the PAV.
The Pope and the PAV think they can corrupt Catholic values with the excuse of giving the Church “a little more humanity.” The Catholic Church’s teaching on abortion is a non-negotiable issue – abortion disregards the sanctity of human life and the Pope know that this is an intrinsic evil.
Don’t let Francis and the PAV get away with this! We must take a stand to ensure this attack on the Catholic faith comes to an end.
ADD YOUR NAME to the growing list of REAL pro-life and pro-family warriors – tell Pope Francis to take back his nomination of radical pro-abortion Mazzucato to the Pontifical Academy for Life!
As LifeSiteNews reported in October, Proposal 3 would also “create a right to sterilize and potentially even transition minors without their parents’ knowledge or consent,” according to legal experts.
According to an analysis by the Great Lakes Justice Center (GLJC), as well as an article by former Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch published by the Michigan Catholic Conference, the implications reach far beyond the expansive text.
“Proposal 3 goes much farther than merely codifying Roe v. Wade, invalidating more than two dozen Michigan pro-life laws and authorizing minors to obtain abortions without a parent’s consent or even notice,’ Bursch writes. And ‘because Proposal 3 grants this right to “every individual,” without age limits, that means the proposal, on its face, authorizes a minor to obtain a sterilization without parental consent or even notice, such as when a minor desires to change his or her gender.’
Archbishop Allen Vigneron, of the Archdiocese of Detroit, also called on Catholics to oppose Prop 3 in the Detroit Catholic, stating, “We are quickly approaching the November 8 election, during which voters in Michigan will decide on Proposal 3, an amendment to the state constitution that would allow unregulated abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.”
Michigan is one of three states voting on such constitutional initiatives, while other states are deciding pro-life measures on today’s ballot.
