Abortion Insurance in Michigan

  • Description: The question of who pays for abortion insurance was answered in Michigan on December 11. The Michigan House (62-47) and Senate (27-11) approved the citizen-initiated Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act. Michigan joins 23 other states in opting-out of abortion coverage in their health insurance exchanges through the Affordable Care Act, and elective abortion had been removed as standard 'benefit' from health plans. The NO Taxes for Abortion Insurance petition drive was democracy in action. In 120 days volunteer Michigan citizens from every county gathered more than 315,000 signatures to support this legislation.
