Yesterday Michigan passed the "Rape Insurance" bill into law yesterday.
(Article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/11/mic… because Kinja is stupid.)
Never mind the fact that Governor Snyder vetoed this bill once already last year. Never mind that Right to Life's petition only accounted for a fraction of MI's population and that the majority of the state did not want this bill.
It's so infuriating. Health insurance covers erectile disfunction medicine and penis pumps, and no one bats an eye. But the minute a woman needs any sort of sexual healthcare, be it birth control, yearly pap exams, or abortions, all of a sudden women are sluts and we just need to shut all of that down. I would have to purchase this insurance simply because I am a woman.
"...State Rep. David Knezek (D) blasted the measure as misogynistic. "This body made up of 80 percent men will make a decision that will impact 100 percent of women," he said."
