WICHITA, Kan. - As reported here in the Kansas Free Press by Kari Rinker, Rep.Pete DeGraaf, (R-Mulvane) made the shocking comment that women better pony up and take out special rape coverage from their insurance providers. Or, just like the careless motorist who has a flat on the side of the road without a spare, women will regret their lack of planning ahead. Unless of course, they have a burning desire to give birth to the rapist's child which DeGraaf apparently heartedly endorses for women, especially his wife and daughter. What a guy!
Of course, the reason women are going to need to buy a "spare" to their original insurance coverage is all due to DeGraaf and his esteem colleagues who want to prohibit insurance companies from covering the cost of abortions in their regular healthcare coverage - even when those pregnancies are the result of rape .
As an associate pastor and Christian financial counselor one might assume that Rep. Pete DeGraaf would exhibit compassion for any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy, especially as a result of rape. Surely this financial planner for God would understand the financial difficulties and instability an unplanned pregnancy and violent assault would have upon a woman's life and see the wisdom of insurance coverage that would include rape.
