Governor reacts to abortion insurance legislation

LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Governor Rick Synder is reacting to the state's abortion insurance legislation.

The bill is back before lawmakers after a successful petition drive supported by Right to Life Michigan.

Under the bill, women could only obtain abortion coverage by purchasing an optional rider on their insurance policy. But the bill does not require commercial insurers to offer one.

On Wednesday, Synder reiterated his opposition, but did acknowledge that the matter is now in the hands of the legislature.    

He told capitol reporters quote... "It's pretty clear how I feel about the issue. It was a piece of legislation that I vetoed. I don't think it's appropriate, but they need to make their own call."

If approved, the bill would become law without crossing Synder's desk again.

If the republican-led legislature does not act within 40 days the proposal would go to the statewide ballot next year.
