Michigan Democrats Propose Abortion Law Repeal

Posted: Updated:

Michigan Democrats are hoping to keep the spotlight on a plan to repeal a controversial law linked to abortion.

They're backing a bill to repeal the requirement that people or businesses who want abortion insurance buy extra coverage in advance.

The bills are not expected to make it through the Republican-controlled legislature.

The measure does not require women suffering miscarriages to have supplemental abortion coverage.

Experts argue that creates uncertainty and confusion for health providers, insurers and patients.

Critics also say rider insurance is not available to women buying their own insurance and there is no exception for rape.
