US abortion debate

The Michigan hotel offering free stays for women travelling for abortions

Some states have passed laws banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected
Over the past few months, US states including Alabama, Ohio and Georgia have passed laws that ban abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. For women living there and seeking a termination, travelling to another state may be the only option.

In response, a hotel manager in the state of Michigan is offering free accommodation and support to women travelling to Michigan for an appointment, where the procedure is still legal.

Shelley, who runs The Yale Hotel in the town of Yale, says she is just part of a sisterhood which is coming together to provide a support network for women.
