Michigan governor signs partial birth abortion ban

Today, October 11, 2011, Governor Rick Snyder signed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban into law. The law is a long awaited, celebrated achievement by dedicated prolife people in Michigan.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing made the following statement:

"Partial Birth Abortion shall be no more in the great state of Michigan.

"More than 15 years ago the reality of this horrific abortion procedure first came into the public light. Since that time, prolife citizens have partnered with elected officials to ban partial birth abortions in Michigan. We are celebrating this achievement, not for ourselves, but for our state as a whole. The final step to this journey, Gov. Snyder's signature, restores a sense of sanity and restores more respect for human life. We express our profound gratitude to the legislature and the governor for their role in making this a reality."
