Michigan about to require women to buy ‘rape insurance’ based on petition signed by 4.2% of voters

“Thanks to a petition drive that resulted in 4.2% of Michiganders voicing their minority opinion, Michigan is about to become a place where women have to plan ahead for their abortions.

If you become pregnant accidentally or if you are raped and become pregnant and haven’t purchased a separate abortion coverage rider on your health insurance, you won’t be covered.

This isn’t just for state government insurance plans or those purchased on the health insurance exchange. It’s for every insurance plan available in the stateApparently, no government is too small to get between, your doctor, and your health insurer.”


Thank Grommett in Heaven for two things: first, that Republican men know what all women need. (Amen!) And second, that Republicans are for “small government” and “individual rights.” Both are in quotes to call the reader’s attention to the nebulous meaning of these terms as our modern “conservatives” (ditto) shift their meanings as the occasion fits.

Anyway, just think what those shiftless Democrats would have done in the same situation. Oh, right—they would have ignored the 4.2% of voters who voted in favor of this outrage and suggest they might consider taking up residence in Toontown . . .
