Michigan County Prosecutors Temporarily Enjoined From Enforcing Pre-Roe Abortion Ban


As reported by Bridge Michigan, a Michigan state trial court judge yesterday issued a preliminary injunction barring county prosecutors from enforcing a 1931 statute banning abortion. The injunction prevents enforcement while the constitutionality of the statute is being litigated. According to the report:

[Judge] Cunningham said the danger of harm to women and doctors if the ban were allowed to take effect “could not be more crystal clear.”

“The court finds the statute dangerous and chilling to our state’s population, childbearing people and the medical professionals that care for them”….

Other Michigan courts have already barred the state Attorney General’s office from enforcing the pre-Roe statute. (See prior posting.) The court yesterday postponed any further hearings until after the November elections in which a proposed state constitutional amendment on abortion rights will likely be on the Michigan ballot.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued a statement (full text) welcoming the court’s decision.
