Talking about the restrictions on abortion coverage passed by Michigan lawmakers
The Michigan House and Senate have approved a controversial law that will require consumers to buy separate policies for abortion coverage.
The question was put to the Legislature by a petition drive pushed by Right To Life, which was launched after Governor Snyder vetoed a similar measure last year. He vetoed that measure because there were no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.
But, because this 2013 version is a voter-initiated law, the Governor does not have veto-power this time around.
We caught up with Rick Pluta, Lansing Bureau Chief for the Michigan Public Radio Network , to talk about this bill.
