Michigan’s ‘Rape Insurance’ Law Limiting Abortion Coverage Takes Effect

Michigan rape insurance billA law requiring Michigan women to purchase a rider if they expect their private health insurance to cover abortion services takes effect Thursday.

Right to Life Michigan admits the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act won’t  lower abortion rates in the state, but will shift the burden on who pays for the services. Opponents say it’s a draconian law that threatens women’s health by limiting their access to a procedure that is legal and constitutionally protected, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The law applies even when an unwanted pregnancy is a result of rape or incest – a circumstance that prompted an impassioned plea by State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing) last winter, when she disclosed last January that she had been raped 20 years ago.

Pregnancy didn’t result, but she said she “can’t even begin to imagine now having to think about the same thing happening to my own daughters" in Michigan's anti-abortion climate.
