A hotel manager in a conservative Michigan town has publicly announced that she will provide free rooms and transportation to and from clinics for women seeking abortions from states that have placed restrictions on the procedure.
Shelley O’Brien runs the Yale Hotel in Yale, MI, a city that, according to Detroit Free Press, voted for President Donald Trump in 2016. He received 65% of the vote in the city. O’Brien posted the following message 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.
