Statement from House Democratic Leader-Elect Tim Greimel (D-Auburn Hills) on the Governor Signing House Bill 5711 (abortion omnibus) into Law:

Friday, December 28, 2012

“Governor Rick Snyder continues to lie to the voters of Michigan by signing such extremely conservative pieces of legislation into law. We have heard time and again that these types of social issues ‘are not on my agenda,’ but he proves to be deceitful once again by issuing his stamp of approval to a special interest’s wish list that restricts a woman’s access to care. Legislative Republicans and Governor Snyder are ignoring a majority of Michiganders’ belief that abortion should remain safe and legal in our state. Republicans should focus on the economy and job creation instead of extreme social policies that further divide our state.”
