Kari Ann Rinker, state coordinator for the Kansas chapter of the National Organization for Women, on Wednesday held a news conference outside the Capitol, saying that state Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, should apologize for comments he made while debating an insurance bill that restricts abortion coverage and requires that women purchase additional insurance coverage for abortions. DeGraaf said women must plan ahead, noting that he had a spare tire in his car. DeGraaf told the Lawrence Journal-World that his comments were taken out of context, but he declined to say how.
