New Move To Repeal Abortion Insurance In Michigan

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - The topic of abortion has gotten a lot of attention across the country recently, especially here in Michigan when lawmakers passed a controversial abortion insurance law back in December.

Today state lawmakers are unveiling legislation to repeal that law.

The controversial Michigan law requires people or businesses to buy "extra" health insurance to terminate a pregnacy.

And Democrats and abortion-rights advocates opposed the legislation when it was approved in December.

Today State Senator Gretchen Whitmer and State Representative Sarah Roberts are taking up the fight again stating the law should not require women to purchase extra insurance.

The introduction of this repeal will take place this morning at 10:30 in the Capitol building.

One woman will share her experience of getting vital women's health care that may no longer be covered on her health plan because of the new law.
