Stateside Podcast: Gov. Whitmer bans abortion-related extraditions

Gov. Whitmer stands behind a podium.
State of Michigan
Gov. Whitmer signed an executive order last week to block abortion-related extraditions.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer recently signed an executive order on Wednesday to prevent Michigan’s law enforcement from helping prosecute people who come from out-of-state to receive an abortion. Barbara McQuade, a former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, and current professor of law at the University of Michigan, discusses why the new laws on abortion represent a challenge to the way states work together under other criminal prosecutions.
