Oakland County judge blocks enforcement of abortion ban in Michigan

An Oakland County judge blocked prosecutors from enforcing the state’s 1931 Abortion Ban.

That ruling came just hours after a court of appeals ruled the ban could be enforced.

“It’s creating a lot of chaos and confusion and fear for women for providers,” said Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

That chaos and confusion Whitmer described only deepened Monday (Aug. 1) as the day started with the court of appeals ruling to allow local county prosecutors to prosecute abortions throughout the state criminally.

With no exception to the rule, the Court of Appeals allowed Michigan’s 1931 statute to go into effect.
