AG Nessel Statement on Court of Appeals Ruling

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement in light of the ruling from the Michigan Court of Appeals concerning the enforcement of Michigan’s 1931 abortion statute by county prosecutors:

“Today’s ruling will not deter my efforts to continue to fight for Michigan women.  The legal battle continues on multiple fronts and those of us who value access to reproductive healthcare and respect a women’s right to make the best decisions for herself, according to her own moral, cultural and religious beliefs are not backing down.  While I respect the ruling from the court, it is by no means the final say on this issue in Michigan.”
