Health expert weighs in on 'moral objection' bill

The lame duck session in the Michigan legislature has been the most active in recent memory. While so-called "right-to-work legislation, signed by Governor Snyder, has gotten the most attention there are a number of other controversial bills working their way through the legislature. They include a bill that would allow health care providers, facilities, or insurers deny service based on religious, moral or ethical objections. The providers would have to provide service in emergency situations. I talked with Peter Jacobson, Professor of Health Law and Policy at the University of Michigan School of Public Health.
