Johnathan Vaughn: a portrait of healing

Johnathan Vaughn is a Michigan Man through and through. From playing for the Wolverines football team to returning to protest the handling of sexual assault allegations against former U-M doctor. Robert Anderson, of whom Vaughn is a survivor, MiC columnist Sarah Akaaboune chronicles how the University made Jon Vaughn the man he is today.

Jim Harbaugh speaks at pro-life event: ‘Have the courage to let the unborn be born’

Jim Harbaugh spoke at an anti-abortion fundraiser in Plymouth, Michigan. While this is not the first time Harbaugh spoke against abortion, the decision to speak feels more pertinent as it comes just weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the national right to obtain abortion services.
