SOUNDBITE (English) Judge Jacob Cunningham, Oakland County Circuit Court:++PARTIALLY COVERED++"Women and all persons capable of carrying children not having the ability and freedom to consult with their medical professionals without fear of prosecution puts the government into the patient examining room. A person carrying a child has the right to bodily autonomy and integrity, as well as a safe doctor-patient relationship, free from government interference as they have been able to do so for nearly 50 years." 4. The lawyers stand and listen, then confer ANNOTATION: An attorney representing two GOP county prosecutors says an appeal is planned.STORYLINE:A Michigan judge has blocked county prosecutors from enforcing a pre-Roe abortion ban that would have allowed providers to be charged with a felony. The preliminary injunction Friday comes after the state Court of Appeals ruled earlier this month that a May preliminary injunction applies only to the attorney general's office, not county prosecutors who handle most crimes. Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Jacob Cunningham's ruling followed two days of testimony from witnesses. Prosecutors in some of the state's most populous counties have said they would not charge providers regardless of the decision, but Republican prosecutors in Kent, Jackson and Macomb counties have said they should be able to enforce the 1931 law. An attorney representing two Republican county prosecutors says an appeal is planned.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
