AG Nessel Reacts to Legislature’s Intervention in Planned Parenthood Lawsuit

By Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement in response to the legislature intervening in the Planned Parenthood lawsuit filed in April: 

“I have made very clear that I will not put the lives of Michigan women in jeopardy by using the resources of my office to defend Michigan’s 1931 statute criminalizing abortion. This is in stark contrast to a state GOP budget plan that sets aside $750,000 in state funding to enforce this archaic law and puts restrictions on funds going to medical providers. 

“While many of my colleagues in the legislature want to strip women of their rights, I will continue to protect women’s reproductive health and their fundamental right to make decisions over their own bodies.”
