Re: 2011 House Bill 4799 (Prohibit coercing a woman to have an abortion )  by Chartwell on March 14, 2012 

This bill and HB 4798, 5134, 5181, and 5182 are totally unnecessary as doctors are already required to screen patients for domestic violence, which includes questions about coercion or threats. The bills' purpose is biased against abortion and women seeking abortions. The bill sets up harassing procedures to intimidate women into not choosing an abortion. It creates another criminal offense directed soley at doctors who perform abortions,thus discouraging them from doing abortions. In short, these bills that pretend to protect women against cercion are themselves coercive. Women seeking an abortion expect their doctors to be concerned about their health and well-being, not an advocate for anti-aboriton zealots. Simply put,these bills over-regulate abortion providers and harass pregnant women seeking an abortion into carrying a pregnancy to term. The ACLU of Michigan, Michigan National Organization for Women, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, the Progressive Women's Alliance of West Michigan, and the Michigan Congress of the Organizations for Obstetricians and Gynecologists all opposed these bills.

Introduced in the House on June 22, 2011, to make it a crime to coerce or attempt to coerce a woman into having an abortion. In addition to potential prison for threats of violence or "stalking," the bill authorizes fines for acts like threatening to file for a divorce from or otherwise change existing living arrangements, threatening to withhold current or promised support, etc
