This whole rape thing is great for raping women but what if I told you we could profit from it too?

Rape tax? Republicans get rape legislation, Democrats get a tax. it's a total win/win

Proposing it is an amazing dick move.  Following one dick move with another doesn't make sense.

Perhaps proposing a law making it the responsibility of the rapist to pay for any and all costs would make more sense.  Said perp has no means to pay?  He's doing time and working until he's paid back the state for the costs they covered.  Of course, that sort of thing might amount to slave labor.  Making someone work for no or little pay is far, far worse than rape...because money.  Go ahead and rape money and see what happens to you.

FTFA: "Requiring Michigan women to plan ahead for an unplanned pregnancy is not only illogical, it's one of the most misogynistic proposals I have ever seen in the Michigan Legislature."

Geeze lady, how else are you going to lower the rate of unplanned pregnancies, besides making people plan for them?

Seems like a smart strategy to me.

Outrageous!  Women should get their rape insurance for free from the Federal government.

No that's just ridiculous. They just have to plan the rapes to coincide with Obama's mandatory annual abortions.

That's silly. Parenthood cannot be planned. It is simply God's will. And sometimes it is God's will that children be conceived by way of legitimate rape.

Other than having that insurance may turn a jury at a rape trial, especially if there are enough of your 'peers' that support this POS

How about if you all come up with 'Republican' insurance? Next time the GOP are elected, the insurance companies have to pay out. Don't know what the premiums would be, but it might be worth it.

When will the GOP learn to just stay completely clear of any subject related to rape.

Here's the thing. If you're raped, it should be the rapists insurance paying for the abortion. Like the at-fault driver in a car accident. Maybe the republicans could compromise by including "uninsured rapist" coverage by default.

For any woman under the age of consent, abortion is because of rape.  Very common situation for abortion.

It's actually "No insurance company can provide this coverage by default in Michigan, not even for cases of rape" bill. It specifically prohibits insurers from offering this coverage in their plans. You'll have to buy a rider if they're even offered, which by the by, aren't cheap.

True.

However, it IS insurance that doesn't cover abortion in the instance of rape, save if you get a rider. And that rider would be de facto rape insurance. 

It's a slightly hyperbolic term, but it only works because there's a large amount of truth behind it.

How do you come to the "aren't cheap" conclusion? Does the bill specify prices?
I could see an insurance company deciding its cheaper to pay for your abortion than it is to pay for your baby, offering it as a free add-on.

I get car insurance...but it doesn't cover flat tires...even flat tires caused by pot holes instead of angry ex-girlfriends...without a rider.  That doesn't make the rider pothole insurance.  That makes it flat tire insurance.
 
2013-12-03 10:32:56 AM  
I just don't get it.  If I ran an insurance company (thankfully I don't have that kind of soul killing job where you have to choose profit or principles) I would be falling all over myself to offer abortion procedures to anyone who wanted them (even men, just to be safe).  If you force a woman you're covering to have an unwanted baby, that baby becomes a dependent...  basically, a liability to your bottom line.

True.  But my insurance was happy to "fix" me because I wanted a vasectomy.  But they don't like paying for "fixing" women without a medical necessity.  I don't understand their reasoning.

Your car isn't human, and doesn't get psychological damage from a flat tire. It doesn't sleep in terror of you if you drive it over a nail.

Rape is a horrible thing. Yes, it's being *slightly* blown up, but you and I are both dudes: we don't have the first damn idea of what we're talking about, not really. I say we see their point, rather than quibble over the semantics of it, and alter the plan accordingly.

serial_crusher: Well, that's a stretch. Abortion == rape now, apparently. Sounds to me like somebody's trying too hard.


An abortion is a service rape victims might utilize to minimize the negative long-term impacts of rape that costs money.  Buying insurance that covers abortions in the case that women get raped could be accurately termed "rape insurance."  Removing abortions from insurance means women who are raped do not have coverage to help pay for an abortion.  They will indeed then need to purchase additional insurance.

Your analogy sucks.  Just like car insurance doesn't prevent accidents, you would never say "fixing your car == car accident."
