Reid dismisses charges in
abortion conspiracy case
Michigan's abortion law was c a 11 e d unconstitutional
Monday by Southfield's District Judge Clarence A. Reid Jr.
Reid made the decision during a pretrial examination of
-Dr. Jesse Ketchum and his wife Judith, who had been charged
with conspiracy to perform abortions.
Reid dismissed the charges. In a ten-minute hearing, he
held that the state law "is vague and indefinite in its termi-
nology and possible applications as to constitute a denial of
due process as protected by the 14th Amendment of the Unit-
ed States Constitut on and the Michigan Constitution..."

But Reid held that a phrase in
the present abortion law which
permits abortion when it "shall

the life of such woman" can be
interpreted in a variety of/ways.

can create uncertainty by both
judicial and dictionary definitions,
He also said the law "infringes
on the basic rights of privacy of
the woman (undergoing abor-
I tion), and the basic right of life
of the unborn person, and in-
fringes upon the right to privacy
between physician a n d patient,
without a sufficient state interest
in abridging the right of privacy
and the right of life."
In determining whether the
state law violates a woman's right
to privacy, Reid said that the issue
is whether the state has a "com-
pelling interest" relating to such
The state's compelling interest
at the time the abortion law was
adopted, Reid said, was to protect
the woman's health. In light of
modern scientific and medical ad-
vancements, this interest Is no
longer evident, he said.
In addition to infringing on the
right of privacy in a physician-
patient relationship, the present

Reid said he believes that the
unborn child "may be a person
under the Constitution, and there-
by shall not be deprived of life
without due process of law."
But the abortion, he added,
"does not provide for the taking
of life with due process."
