Perhaps a few words of explanation are in order.

Michigan has one of the highest unemployment rates in the United States -- 8.5% as of April. The national average is 8.1% and only 10 states have a higher unemployment rate than does Michigan.

In addition, Republicans in the Michigan Legislature have proposed a harsh new set of restrictions on abortion, including making them illegal after 20 weeks gestation, and imposing new requirements on abortion providers -- including making them provide facilities equal to those found in outpatient surgery centers, even if the clinical in question does not provide surgical abortions -- that the Michigan American Civil Liberties Union calls this proposed law the "greatest assault on reproductive rights" in Michigan's history. Abortion rights groups in the state say this law, often referred to as "targeted regulation of abortion providers" (or TRAP), would likely shut down all abortion providers in the state. Other provisions of the bill require a doctor to be physically present to dispense abortion drugs (which would basically outlaw the use of telemedicine abortions).

Unfortunately, Republicans hold commanding majorities in both the Michigan House and Senate.

God has nothing to do with it! But religion rears its ugly head in this instance when they dare to dictate their beliefs on the American public as a whole!

Well, that's the problem, isn't it? No one cares what you believe, or shouldn't care anyway. But, when you try to impose your own religious views on others through the repressive means of the State, that's exactly what the Founders were concerned about. Don't like abortion? Fine, don't have one. Don't like gay people? Fine, don't have gay friends. But, when you use the State, and its monopoly on violence and the power to deprive people of their liberty, that's a BIG problem.
