This Wednesday, the train wreck known as the GOP primary crashes its sorry way into Michigan when the skabillionth debate will be held at Oakland University. As you might imagine, there are a few folks that would like to “welcome” them to our fair state.
First, Planned Parenthood of Michigan (PPOM) will be there to meet the GOP contenders, every single one of which is anti-choice.
This Wednesday, November 9, 2011, a Republican Presidential Debate will be taking place at Oakland University. All of the GOP candidates are anti-choice, with many supporting a “personhood” amendment that would not only outlaw abortion but ban common forms of birth control, emergency contraception, and in vitro fertilization.
The war on women must stop! Join Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan and our coalition partners from around the state to tell them their agenda is wrong for women, wrong for families, wrong for Michigan, and wrong for America!

But they aren’t the only ones. Protect Your Care will also be there.
