DeGraaf, who clearly thinks about women first, offered this bone to women: They could purchase separate "abortion-only policies." What a generous and considerate man he is. So concerned about women was DeGraff that he argued: "We do need to plan ahead, don't we, in life? ... I have a spare tire on my car."
DeGraaf actually compared a rape pregnancy to blowing out a tire. Plan ahead for rape? Shameful. This is all a reminder that on Friday, the state of Kansas will be defending its new law restricting insurance coverage for abortions (via KAKE).
The state is responding to the ACLU's lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law, which it argues discriminates against women by preventing them from purchasing insurance coverage for all of their health needs, unlike men.
Kansas argues that it has a right to protect human life, which I'm sure they'd argue begins at penetration. Of course, Brownbackistan favors childbirth over abortion — even in the case of rape or a medical emergency.
All of this is about restricting women's access to a legal medical procedure.
