Lawmaker Says Women Should Plan Ahead in Case of Rape, Since He Carries A Spare Tire
"And Rep. Barbara Bollier, a Mission Hills Kansas Republican who supports abortion rights, questioned whether women would buy abortion-only policies long before they have crisis or unwanted pregnancies or are rape victims.

During the House's debate, Rep. Pete DeGraaf, a Mulvane Republican who supports the bill, told her: "We do need to plan ahead, don't we, in life?"

Bollier asked him, "And so women need to plan ahead for issues that they have no control over with a pregnancy?"

DeGraaf drew groans of protest from some House members when he responded, "I have spare tire on my car."

1. he better get a pair of those truck nuts, cause someone may

10. he already does
It's called his health insurance.
and he didnt' have to get a special extra plan that was going to cost more just because he has a gland in his ass.

I still don't get how republicans can not see what they are doing as a huge government intrusion.

3. IT is the same in WI where our Repug Gov has defunded family planning....


..Legislators also have sent him a bill to impose new health and safety standards specifically for abortion clinics, which Brownback is expected to sign. And the state budget approved by lawmakers contains a provision diverting $300,000 in federal family planning dollars away from Planned Parenthood to public hospitals and health departments.

4. They haven't publicly declared it, but its a war on women.
How any woman could vote republican is beyond me.

6. The code word is "Family Values" - which is all about women, not men.
Men need to run the world, so women need to handle "family."

Slaveowners never thought of slavery as discrimination or subjugation of another race.

7. Exactly how does one "plan ahead" for a rape?
Edited on Tue May-24-11 11:27 AM by yellowcanine
And comparing a rape to a flat tire is just ignorant and repugnant.

9. According to that guy, it is the cost of being female in America
'spose he is married and has daughters?

"As you get older, men will want to rape you. It is normal in America........"
