LANSING, MI (WHTC) - The battle over abortion is once again heating up in Lansing. At least six bills regarding the issue have already been introduced, including one that would require abortions performed after 19 weeks to take place in a hospital with a neonatal unit, while another would mandate that, at least two hours before an abortion, women have an ultrasound to show the development of the fetus. Speaking with WHTC News prior to his monthly appearance on "Talk of the Town" on Monday morning, state Senator Arlan Meekhof of West Olive, an ardent pro-life Republican, says that these measures are all on the side of common sense. Some of the measures are retreads of proposals brought up last year that either didn't make it through the Legislature or were vetoed by Governor Snyder. Senator Meekhof's remarks are available in the WHTC News section of the podcast tab on this website.
