Michigan Gov Ended Elective Procedures, But Not Abortion

In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer instituted some of the harshest and strongest measures of any state in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus. From prohibiting public gatherings of any size, banning visits to friends and relatives, to requiring stores to close off entire sections (which confusingly included garden centers and plant nurseries) Michigan has instituted extreme measures to curb any further spread of the virus. Although many have slammed Whitmer’s approach as a gross overreach, condemning her executive orders as “draconian,” her hypocrisy is what warrants real criticism and intense scrutiny. Early on, Whitmer banned all non-essential businesses from operating.
