Judges order further freezes abortion ban

Governor Gretchen Whitmer has filed a renewed request with the Michigan Supreme Court to constitutionally protect the right to abortion in Michigan.

 

This after a ruling from the Michigan Court of Appeals caused confusion by clearing a path for county prosecutors to prosecute doctors and nurses for providing reproductive care.

 

That same day, Governor Whitmer secured a temporary restraining order against prosecutors with abortion clinics in their counties, ensuring those health care providers could keep doing their jobs.

 

The governors latest filing with the Michigan Supreme Court highlights this recent legal confusion and the pressing need it shows for the states highest court to step in.
