It’s final: Illegal abortions are now illegaler in Michigan


Man, I’m glad our Republican legislature and governor don’t have better things to do than making illegal abortions illegaler.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill this week banning a type of late-term abortion.

The legislation was approved last month by the legislature and mirrors a federal ban on the practice, called partial-birth abortion by opponents of the procedure, that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007.

The legislature has tried to pass the bill three times in the last eight years.

Twice, it was vetoed by former Gov. Jennifer Granholm and a third time, it was ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Circuit Court.

They are a mirror image of the U.S House where yesterday was spent making illegal abortions illegaler, as well.

They prolly never would have gotten to these things if we had jobs or economic crises to deal with, eh?
