GOP State Rep Compares Rape to Getting a Flat Tire

From the Mcpherson Sentinel:

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.”

“I also have life insurance,” he added. “I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for.”

DeGraaf is also a pastor.

  • Wait….WHAT?

    Pete DeGraaf takes victim blaming to a whole new level!

  • ben

    Someone should have asked him how he has personally prepared for getting raped. Christ, what an asshole.

  • Frank

    I don’t understand..a spare tire is a back up plan for when something bad happens. Is he trying to make the case for Planned Parenthood and similar social services as society’s way of planning ahead for sexual violence?

    • Brandon

      Almost the opposite. The bill states that insurance companies can no longer provide funding for abortions, unless a woman also buys an “abortion insurance” policy.

    My wish for this great pastor would be that he gets repeated flats on some very rough roads.

    • Stephen

      If by “repeated flats”, you mean constant anal rape, and by “rough roads”, you mean pineapples. Then yes that’s my wish too

        Remember, pineapple goes in leaves-first, just as you would pet a porcupine tail-to-head…

  • Barbwire

    Isn’t it interesting how the people so very opposed to helping women who have been raped, and so very opposed to allowing a woman to choose what happens with her body are almost always men? If men could get pregnant, these laws would be pro-abortion, not even pro-choice.

      And abortion would be free, available with drive-thru service.
