Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel joined NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday to discuss the leaked opinion and abortion laws in her state. She said the advisory would have a “chilling effect” on women’s health care.

“Doctors will be so afraid that there will be investigations into these procedures,” adding that in many cases when these procedures are done, “there is no viability.”

“They will be so worried that these cases will be investigated, it will be a deterrent and you will not have the basic medical care necessary so that women do not have extreme health problems or even not don’t die. Doctors just aren’t going to stop doing these procedures anymore because they don’t want to go to jail for it,” she said.
