Following the controversy over the Right To Work bill, the Michigan House approved an omnibus abortion bill early last Friday morning which had passed in the Senate Wednesday. Nicknamed the “Pro-life Bus,” it seeks to hold the abortion industry to the same health and safety standards as other out-patient medical facilities. Much of this legislation has overwhelming support from likely voters.
It joins two other recently passed bills which limit abortion coverage in the state’s insurance exchange policies and require doctors to try to determine if a patient is being coerced. The bills await signing by Gov. Rick Snyder.
Sen. Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) attempted to counter with amendments requiring doctors to determine whether a vasectomy was medically necessary and whether the man was coerced. They failed.
