Michigan legislature considers abortion insurance proposal this week

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - A controversial abortion insurance proposal is heading to the Michigan legislature.  Lawmakers returned from a two-week break Tuesday to consider a petition initiative that could make Michigan the ninth state in the country to prohibit insurance plans from including abortion coverage in healthcare policies. 

The petition moves forward after being unanimously certified by the State Board of Canvassers on Monday.  Officials say the proposal has a good chance of passing and becoming law since the Legislature has strong anti-abortion majorities in both the state House and Senate.
