In Michigan, if you’re an oppressed woman seeking an abortion, Shelley O’Brien has a room for you.
Shelley runs the Yale Hotel in the city by the same name, and she’s extending an invitation to lovely ladies in states such as Alabama and Georgia to come on up to the Great Lakes State and get that pregnancy undone.
The liberal resident of a 65%-Trump-voter town made her offer on Facebook:
“Dear sisters that live in Alabama, Ohio, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, or any of the other states that follow with similar laws restricting access, we cannot do anything about the way you are being treated in your home-state. But, if you can make it to Michigan, we will support you with several nights lodging, and transportation to and from your appointment.”
The original post was written on May 16th; it’s been updated based on new states’ legislation.
And people are getting on board to drive chicks from their crappy states:
“(Update 5/22/19: Since I posted this, I’ve received numbers of people willing to help drive you here… and I’ve learned of organizations like Yellowhammerfund.org that have a network in place already to help with the many barriers to receiving safe and legal reproductive services. If you need help, please message me. In order to support that effort, I will be donating 25% of my receipts that are a direct result of the new policy to a fund like this. Amount donated to date: $100 (5/22/19) 🙂 )”
