Governor Granholm Threatens to Veto Partial-Birth Abortion Ban

Citizens for Traditional Values
Lansing MI 48908

After frustrating delays in the House, SB 776, which would ban partial-birth abortion, is finally headed to the Governor’s desk for her signature. However, Governor Granholm has indicated that she will not sign the bill. The next fourteen days are crucial; within that time period the Governor must sign the bill, veto it, or allow it to go into effect without her signature.

Citizens for Traditional Values and Right to Life Michigan urge you to contact Governor Granholm immediately urging her to sign the bill which has the support of Michigan citizens. This is the third time that Michigan citizens have expressed their desire to pass legislation mirroring the federal level ban.

In 2003, Governor Granholm vetoed legislation that would have defined birth by stipulating that once any part of a child emerged from its mother it would be granted full legal standing. In protest, Michigan voters forced a referendum to override the Governor’s veto, however the legislation was later declared unconstitutional.
