ACLU, Planned Parenthood plan abortion rider fight

LANSING (WKZO) -- Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union are preparing to start fighting a law set to take effect next year limiting abortion coverage.  Lawmakers passed legislation that came from a Right to Life petition drive this week requiring people to purchase an optional rider on their insurance plans if they want abortions to be covered.

The ACLU, Planned Parenthood and other groups will meet Wednesday to start planning a referendum to overturn the abortion rider.  Because it came from a petition, the law will take effect without requiring the signature of Governor Rick Snyder.
