Michigan House OKs new abortion regulations

Michigan House OKs new abortion regulations | The Detroit News | A deeply divided Michigan House on Wednesday approved new regulations for abortion providers after passionate floor debate on the issue. House Republicans will not hold votes on two other abortion bills, including a controversial ban on most abortions after 20 weeks with a narrow exception for the mother's life.

The legislation that was passed requires more medical malpractice insurance for abortion providers who have lost two lawsuits, dictates how to dispose of aborted fetal remains, mandates abortion clinics become licensed surgical centers and prohibits doctors from prescribing the RU-486 abortion bill through an online service. The bill also makes it criminal to coerce a woman into having an abortion.
