Michigan GOP's next target: abortion

Newsmax reports:

Barely a day after passing controversial right-to-work legislation, the Republican-controlled Michigan legislature began moving two divisive bills aimed at limiting abortions.

One measure passed by the state Senate Wednesday would tighten licensing requirements on abortion clinics and another approved by a House committee and moved to the floor would "allow health care providers to refuse service based on moral objections, religious reasons, or matters of conscience," the Detroit Free Press reported.

Both bills, which were approved along party lines with most Democrats objecting, are expected to reach Republican Gov. Mitch Snyder's desk for his signature over the holidays as state legislators hurry to wrap up this year's session. Facebook Fark Furl
