Bishop Boyea Statement on Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Veto

Most Reverend Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, issued the following statement after Governor Jennifer Granholm vetoed Senate Bill 776, legislation banning partial-birth abortion in Michigan:

"I am very proud to be a citizen of Michigan where we do not execute even the cruelest criminal. Today, however, I am deeply saddened that our state permits the execution of an innocent baby through the process of partial birth abortion. The people of this state by direct vote in 2004 and through their elected legislators in this year, 2008, have justly condemned this evil. The governor, by vetoing yet again the will of the people, is allowing this barbaric act to continue. Persons of good will are encouraged to contact the governor and their legislators to express the need to protect the most vulnerable among us."
