AG Nessel Statement on Court of Appeals Ruling
August 24, 2022
LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the statement below following a denial of the state legislature’s appeal of a preliminary injunction in Planned Parenthood v Attorney General of the State of Michigan by the Court of Appeals:
“The Court today made clear it was not persuaded by the legislature’s attempt to end access to abortion care in Michigan. I have repeatedly pledged that I will not prosecute any medical staff for providing necessary care. I refuse to turn doctors and nurses into criminals for upholding their oath and delivering the standard of care required of their professions. Michigan women deserve certainty and I fully support their right to make personal medical decisions free from government intrusion and the threat of criminal prosecution.”
