LANSING (WKZO) --  Opponents of abortion are now setting out to collect over 258-thousand valid signatures to put new restrictions on the procedure into law.  They want to force Michigan residents to have to purchase an optional rider on their health insurance to cover abortions, otherwise the procedure wouldn't be covered under healthcare plans ahead of federal health care reform changes.

Governor Snyder vetoed a reform of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan last year because conservatives had attached the provision to the legislation.  If the measure makes it to the ballot and passes, it cannot be overridden by the governor.
