The day in photos, June 2, 2011

Kari Ann Rinker, Kansas state coordinator for the National Organization for Women, points out the tires she brought to a news conference to protest recent remarks by state Rep. Pete DeGraaf, a Mulvane Republican, Wednesday, June 1, 2011 outside the Statehouse, in Topeka. DeGraaf supports a new state law requiring women to buy separate health insurance policies if they want most abortions covered and compared buying them to having a spare tire on a car.

Kontum, the pesky fact that the effected people may have feelings and pain and frustration and confusion...never comes into the mind of a legislator. They can't be bothered with such things when saving us from ourselves. You know, the same bunch in one breath says government is too intrusive and needs to be smaller, then in the next tells us what we can and can't do.

would the spare tire thing apply to one of their female off-spring if is was to happen to them?
