Abortion Insurance

FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Michigan Legislature shows state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer, of East Lansing, Mich., leader of the Democratic minority in the Senate. She cited her own rape in criticizing the Republican-controlled Legislature's final approval Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, of a bill that bans commercial insurance policies from covering abortions, unless the woman covered buys a separate rider to include abortion services. There is no rape exception, in the bill, which allows abortion coverage if the woman's life is endangered. (AP Photo/Michigan Legislature, File)
