|From now on in Michigan, all public health insurance plans and most private ones will not be able to automatically include coverage for abortion services in their comprehensive policies.
Women will have to purchase separate riders in order to be covered for any sort of elective abortion. It doesn't matter to the Michigan Legislature if the pregnancy is wanted but the baby has a medical condition incompatible with life. It doesn't matter to the Michigan Legislature whether a pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.
Oh, and by the way, a woman who is already pregnant is not allowed to purchase the rider. Too bad for her! She should have known she was going to be raped and get pregnant!
