It’s always useful to point out just how much wingnut men hate women, because that, dears, is deeply intertwined with their hatred for gay people. Take this guy, Kansas state representative Pete DeGraaf. He is, of course, a pastor, so he speaks as a man of the cloth when he defends his position on banning abortion coverage even in the cases of rape. You see, he feels that, if a woman wants to be able to get an abortion after being raped and impregnated, she should have to have an “abortion-only” insurance policy! I mean, you have a spare tire in the back of your car, just in case the road brutally rapes your tires, right? No, really:
Rep. Barbara Bollier, a Mission Hills Republican who supports abortion rights, questioned whether women would buy abortion-only policies long before they have crisis or unwanted pregnancies or are rape victims.
During the House’s debate, Rep. Pete DeGraaf, a Mulvane Republican who supports the bill, told her: “We do need to plan ahead, don’t we, in life?”
Bollier asked him, “And so women need to plan ahead for issues that they have no control over with a pregnancy?”
DeGraaf drew groans of protest from some House members when he responded, “I have spare tire on my car.”
“I also have life insurance,” he added. “I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for.”
Oh, by the way, this bill is actually about to become law, because that’s what happens when you actually elect childish, hateful wingnuts into office.
So yeah, ladies. You need to spend your hard earned dollars on a separate insurance policy, just in case someone decides to brutally rape you and you end up pregnant. I mean, it was probably your fault anyway, and even rape babies are blessings, according to Republican Jesus.
As I said this morning, sometimes I wonder why I read the internet.
