.- Bishop Walter Hurley is hopeful appeals to higher courts will reinstate the Michigan Legal Birth Definition Act. The bishop of Grand Rapids made the comment after news that Lansing-Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox intends to appeal a federal court decision that the state law banning partial-birth abortions is unconstitutional.
Bishop Hurley said he doesn't understand how the judge or anyone can support partial-birth abortion, which he describes as “particularly brutal,” reported journalist Walter Hurley.
The bishop also warned that legalizing partial-birth abortion doesn’t make it moral.
The governor vetoed the Michigan Birth Definition Act, but 460,000 people signed petitions to reintroduce the bill, Hurley reported. The bill was approved a second time by the legislature, and it may still become law if high courts decide it is constitutional.
