Jeezus. Can these Republican man-pigs possibly be any more anti-woman? Why not just ban vaginas while you’re at it? Yeah! Can’t have an abortion without a ‘gina, right guys!! *snork snork*
(I’m sure some women voted for this, too–there are always a few who vote their own rights away. Sigh.)
Michigan lawmakers passed a controversial measure on Wednesday that will ban all insurance plans in the state from covering abortion unless the woman’s life is in danger. The law, which takes effect in March, will force women and employers to purchase a separate abortion rider if they would like the procedure covered, even in cases of rape and incest.
Supporters of the “Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act” argue that it allows people who are opposed to abortion to avoid paying into a plan that covers it. Opponents have nicknamed it the “rape insurance” initiative, because it would force some women to anticipate the possibility of being raped by purchasing the extra abortion insurance ahead of time.
