Michigan legislature makes illegal abortions illegal(er)


Can something be “more illegal” than it already is? I guess it can if you are a Michigan Republican. Yesterday, the Michigan state House and Senate both passed bills that outlaw so-called “partial birth abortions”.

Problem is, these types of abortions are already illegal under a federal law passed eight years ago.

Thankfully they aren’t wasting their time worrying about trivial stuff like the fact that more Michiganders than ever are living in poverty including more than half of the children in Detroit, our largest city. Or the fact that our unemployment rate edged back UP over 11% again last month. That would be frivolous when there are illegal abortions to make illegal.

Err…MORE illegal.
