Abortion rights court hearing to head into second day


A court hearing in Oakland County on the status of abortion rights in Michigan is heading into a second day

A judge will decide whether to extend a restraining order that shields abortion providers from prosecution while the case plays out. That order remains in effect for now.

Doctor Natasha Bagdasarian is the state’s chief medical executive. She testified that doctors and patients don’t know what to expect from day to day.

“We at the Department of Health and Human Services and myself personally have received questions about what is legal right now.”

This question on the restraining order is part of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s lawsuit seeking a ruling that abortion rights are protected under the Michigan Constitution.
