Snyder signs new abortion rules bill

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill that will implement new rules for clinics that provide abortions.

The new rules mean that clinics will have to screen patients to make sure they have not been coerced into having an abortion.

It will also require that health facilities that advertise abortion services and conduct more than 120 abortions a year become licensed by the state.

But Snyder vetoed a provision that would have barred Blue Cross-Blue Shield from providing standard abortion coverage. He said that the legislation went too far.
