Michigan's prolife Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a lawsuit in Eaton County Circuit Court to permanently close two abortion clinics in Michigan. The lawsuit is focused on the Health Care Clinic in Delta Township and the Women's Choice Clinic in Saginaw.

In response to the lawsuit, Eaton County Circuit Court Judge Calvin Osterhaven signed a temporary restraining order (TRO). A hearing was scheduled for Monday, November 21, 2011.

According to an agreement submitted by Schuette and the owner of the abortion businesses, the two clinics will be permanently closed and the owner, along with his wife, are banned from ever organizing another abortion clinic. Eaton County Circuit Court Judge Calvin Osterhaven approved the agreement.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, "I laud Attorney General Schuette for following the law and pressing charges against the owners of these two abortion businesses. Those involved in the occupation of abortion are not above the law. Our attorney general has uncovered violations which resulted in the Health Care Clinic and the Women's Choice Clinic being shut down."

Schuette said, "To ensure accountability and patient safety, Michigan law requires medical facilities to be incorporated with a licensed medical professional at the helm. Strict enforcement of the law ensures medical clinics cannot put profit ahead of responsible patient care."
