DETROIT, Sept 17 ( – Health officials in Muskegon and Ottawa counties who said they would not comply with Michigan’s new Women’s Right to Know legislation that went into effect Monday were told by state authorities that refusal to abide by the new law would result in the loss of license and state funding.

After six years of battling abortion providers, the new law went into effect requiring women be given information about what abortion procedure they will have, the name of the doctor,  line drawings of the gestational age of their unborn baby, other options to abortion such as adoption, and at least one day to review the material.

Health department directors Ken Kraus,  and William Lamain of Muskegon and Ottawa counties respectively, complained that the decision was made for political reasons.
