Mich. Gov. Exempts Free Speech From Stay-At-Home Order Amid Lawsuit From Christian Cited by Police

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has posted a notice on her website advising that her stay-at-home order does not prohibit outdoor First Amendment expression as a man who was ticketed for engaging in pro-life outreach on the sidewalk outside a Detroit abortion facility filed a lawsuit to challenge the order’s application to his activity.

“Does Executive Order 2020-42 prohibit persons from engaging in outdoor activities that are protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution?” reads a new page created on the Michigan.gov website last week. “No. Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan, but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the person’s household.” As previously reported, Andrew Belanger, who is associated with ONElife for Life, was standing alone outside of Scotsdale Women’s Center and Family Planning on March 30 when several police cars pulled up to confront him. Miles O’Brien and Justin Phillips, who are also with the organization, soon arrived to join Belanger and noted the significant police presence. Online footage captures an officer warns, “We’re here for a violation of the stay-at-home order by the governor, okay? This isn’t essential to be out right now. … Right now, it’s a $500 fine.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
