Michigan House Will Not Vote On Additional Anti-Abortion Bills

After passing a 45-page anti-abortion bill that would turn doctors into detectives and try to regulate abortion clinics out of existence, lawmakers in the Michigan House will not vote on two companion anti-abortion bills. A spokesman said legislators want to make sure that one of the bills, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks with a very narrow exception when a woman’s life is in danger, is constitutional. “We decided not to take that up right now so we can discuss the legislation further,” Ari Adler, spokesman for House Speaker Jase Bolger (R), told the Detroit News.
