Lisa DeKryger Wins Endorsement From Group Seeking to Enforce Law Criminalizing Abortion, Jailing Women and Doctors
Right to Life of Michigan, a group seeking to enforce a 1931 Michigan state law which will ban abortion and jail women and doctors following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, has endorsed Lisa DeKryger for Michigan’s 83rd State House District.

Right to Life of Michigan, an organization committed to “ending abortion in our state” endorsed over 200 hundred different candidates running in statewide, special and local elections, including Tudor Dixon, Republican candidate for Governor, and Lisa DeKryger, who is running for the Michigan State House.
In the wake of June’s decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade, the group’s goal is to elect leaders who will uphold and enforce existing Michigan state laws that restrict abortion, including a 1931 state law that prohibits all abortions, with no exceptions for rape or incest, and includes jail sentences for women and doctors who perform the procedures.
Genevieve Marnon, Legislative Director at Right to Life of Michigan, is supportive of the 1931 law—even in cases of rape. “We definitely support, of course, punishing the rapist, but we don’t support killing the unborn, innocent child,” she said.
DeKryger is co-founder of Wyoming, Michigan-based DeKryger Builder Inc, a small business she runs alongside her husband, and a deacon at Resurrection Life Church.
Wyoming Councilman John Fitzgerald has come out against reinstating the 1931 law.
