SB564 & 565 passed the House on Dec. 15, 2016

The bill passed the Senate earlier in the year.  Lt. Gov. Calley signed the bill during Gov. Snyder vacation.  The bills prohibit any money being paid to abortionists or clinics for supplying organs and tissue of aborted babies used in research.


Elective abortion removed as standard ‘benefit’ from health plans 

The question of who pays for abortion insurance was answered today in Michigan. The Michigan House (62-47) and Senate (27-11) approved the citizen-initiated Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act. The Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act is about who desires abortion coverage and who will pay for it, not whether abortion is legal or if insurance is available.

The December 11 vote in the Michigan House and Senate is a victory for Michigan and concludes a narrative of effort by a cast of hundreds of thousands of volunteers and key leaders. Because of the dedication of many, Michigan joins 23 other states in opting-out of abortion coverage in their health insurance exchanges through the Affordable Care Act.

Women's reproductive health isn't a matter of 'pro-life' vs. 'pro-choice'
Chicago Tribune
Policymaking around reproductive health has had the unfortunate effect of splitting Americans into two camps: “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” These labels are limiting and misleading, as well as harmful to millions of women in need of critical medical care.
