LANSING, MI - The Michigan House on Wednesday approved sweeping legislation that would add regulations and restrictions to abortion practices in the state, the first major step of an emotional debate expected to last into the fall.

The House passed the main bill in a three-bill package by a 70-39 vote. Two more bills in the package were awaiting votes.

The controversial 20-week abortion ban is not included in the main bill that passed, but will be taken up at a later date.
