LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Senate may vote this week to protect health providers who refuse to provide services on moral or religious grounds.
State law already shields hospitals and doctors from having to perform an abortion. Supporters say the law should be broadened so providers and insurers don't face legal repercussions for not providing contraception, taking someone off life support or performing another procedure.
Many in the medical community say the bill is overly broad and a solution in search of a problem.
Versions of the legislation date back a decade. Supporters including the Michigan Catholic Conference are hopeful a conscience-objection measure becomes law since Republicans control the Legislature.
GOP Gov. Rick Snyder has no official position on the measure and typically isn't enthusiastic about social issues.
