Michigan House Passes Sweeping Abortion Bill

The Michigan State House of Representatives passed one part of a massive, three-bill omnibus package on Wednesday that would restrict access to abortions and heavily regulate clinics that provide them.

The bill would impose new insurance and licensing requirements on abortion clinics that bill opponents said could force them to close. It also would regulate the disposal of fetal remains, require some physicians who perform abortions to carry $1 million in liability insurance, ban the use of teleconferences to prescribe abortion medication, and force doctors to screen women for coercion before providing abortions.
