Schuette applauds 'partial-birth' ban law approval

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette made the following statement in response to the passage of legislation to create a state ban on partial-birth abortion by both houses of the Michigan legislature:

''Today's passage of a state ban on the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion marks the end of a long battle to provide more protections for the unborn.

"As a result, state and local law enforcement will soon be empowered to take action against this gruesome procedure, instead of waiting for the federal government.

"I congratulate the legislature for their work on this issue.''
