Michigan House committee holds hearing on permanently defunding abortion providers

Today, the Michigan House Appropriations Committee held a hearing on H.B. 4145.  H.B. 4145 would add a section to the public health code which prevents state departments from distributing money to organizations that perform or refer for elective abortions.

Michigan’s legislative director, Ed Rivet, testified at the hearing and used fetal models to show the size and appearance of unborn children being aborted in Michigan on a daily basis. 

Video of the hearing will be placed online at Michigan House of Representatives video archive web site in the near future.

UPDATE: Here's a direct link to the video of the hearing.
