State governments have become the new battleground for abortion rights in the United States. Nearly half of all 50 states currently protect abortion access, while “trigger laws” banning abortion went into effect in 11 states when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Abortion supporters protest in state capitals and vow to challenge bans, while opponents push for more restrictions. In Michigan, home of Set Free Ministries, abortion advocates want the issue on the midterm election ballot.

Set Free’s Dean Vander Mey says abortion is more than a political or legal issue: it’s a choice with emotional and spiritual consequences.

“The killing of a child that God is knitting in her mother’s womb is sinful. It’s wrong. Everyone knows that, but they don’t want to acknowledge that,” Vander Mey says.
