We have gotten very good news this week regarding the Medical Good Faith Act which would require hospitals and doctors in Michigan to provide parents/guardians with their medical futility policies.  My state senator is Jim Marleau and he is sponsoring the bill.  Senator Marleau is the chair of the committee which handles these medical issues.  I also have the only pro-life democrat senator as a co-sponsor, his name is Tupac Hunter and he is also the minority leader.  The bill was introduced as Michigan Senate Bill 165 on February 7th and was referred to committee.  We should receive a committee hearing on a Thursday at 2:30 sometime in the next 4 weeks or so. 

My senator's office and Senator Hunter's office have been actively working to get support for the bill.  We have Right to Life of Michigan and the Catholic League backing the bill.  I am becoming increasing encouraged that we will get this bill passed since we have a dominant republican majority in both the state house and senate along with a republican governor.  If you all noticed, we have many of the same people serving who just passed Freedom to Work in Michigan so they have more than enough courage to vote this bill into law.  My goal is to get this passed into Michigan and begin working with others to get the Medical Good Faith Act passed into law throughout the country.

Faith update...she has been doing well, but is currently a bit under the weather.  She is really walking well and if you haven't seen the video my daughter shot, I have attached a link for you.
