Reproductive Health

Roe v. Wade has been overturned, meaning there is no longer a constitutional right to abortion in the United States of America. However, abortion is still legal in Michigan, something that has been affirmed after the passage of proposition 3 in the 2022 election.

In the wake of this decision, the Center for Women and Gender Equity stands with the GVSU community during this challenging time and offers this additional information. Our office will always be a safe space for students, staff, faculty and the community to be heard and supported. Please reach out to our Center for support should you need it during this time.
