<p>State Representative Sarah Roberts (D-St. Clair Shores) and State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing) introduced bills today that would repeal a controversial law that forces women to buy additional health insurance coverage for necessary medical care during a miscarriage or abortion even in cases of rape and when the woman’s health is in jeopardy. The law restricting women’s access to vital health care was passed by Republicans in the Michigan Legislature in December 2013 and took effect in March. House Bill 5697 and Senate Bill 1010 would repeal that law.</p>
