News Release: Michigan Catholic Conference Statement on Partial-Birth Abortion Ruling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(LANSING)—Michigan Catholic Conference President and Chief Executive Officer Sister Monica Kostielney, R.S.M. today made the following statement immediately following Judge Denise Hood’s decision to rule Michigan’s partial-birth abortion ban unconstitutional:

“Obviously today’s ruling is a setback; a setback for women, for unborn children and for the protection of innocent human life. Consequently, the dedicated fight to end heinous partial-birth abortions will continue. It is the sincere hope of the Michigan Catholic Conference that the Attorney General will appeal Judge Hood’s decision to the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court.

“The Michigan Catholic Conference disagrees with the judge’s decision that the Legal Birth Definition Act presents an ‘undue burden’ and is unconstitutionally vague. We look forward to the Sixth Circuit Court upholding the state law based on the adequate health protection as previously ruled in the Taft decision.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
