News Release: Michigan Catholic Conference Statement Regarding U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals’ Partial-Birth Abortion Ruling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(LANSING)—Michigan Catholic Conference Vice President for Public Policy Paul A. Long made the following statement today after the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Michigan’s Legal Birth Definition Act as unconstitutional:

“Today’s ruling, which protects an ideology that has imposed upon our state and nation one of the most inhumane, sadistic and brutal acts of aggression that history will witness, is disappointing not only for women but also for the protection of innocent human life. Those who share a common interest in banning the unjust practice of partial-birth abortion will continue to work diligently until Michigan law reflects the will of the people.”

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