MICHIGAN’S VOICE: NO TAXES FOR ABORTION INSURANCE PETITION Parkside is taking part in gathering signatures for a petition to initiate legislation to remove automatic abortion payments from health insurance. Thus, we will not be forced to pay for someone else’s abortion and those who want it would have to purchase a separate rider from any insurance plan in Michigan, whether public, private or plans under Obama Care. By gathering 400,000 valid signatures throughout Michigan, we as citizens will be putting the legislation before our Michigan legislature for a veto- proof vote. The governor’s signature will not be needed. If interested, please sign a petition located on the table outside the church office. Be sure to sign on the correct page for your county. If you would be interested in taking home a petition to have friends and family sign it, you can pick one up on the table. CALLING ALL GOLFERS!
