Pete "Spare Tire" DeGraaf
In a story that's hit the internet like a bombshell (but not the LJ World), Kansas Rep Pete DeGraaf from Mulvane compared separate "abortion only" insurance to having a "spare tire on a car".
Considering that one in four women in the US will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lifetime I guess it's perfectly OK for the "free market" to cash in on these assaults and their unintended consequences. At the same time the far right social conservatives can piously put their hands together and look skyward and say they had nothing to do with it. One more salvo in the war on women. Welcome to Kansas.
