The Metaphorical Spare Tire: Being prepared for Rape-Pregnancies


At a House debate for a new bill that would force women to “buy separate, abortion-only insurance policies to cover the expensive procedure,” Rep. Pete DeGraaf (R-Mulvane) defended the bill, declaring that women should be prepared for unplanned pregnancies (including pregnancies that result from rape) by buying special insurance ahead of time — just as he prepares for unintended flat tires by keeping a spare in his car at all times. Uhhh..

In response, Mother Jones columnist Jen Phillips created this Venn Diagram to show the similarities/differences between being raped and getting a flat tire.

Hopefully this will come in handy next time DeGraaf finds himself unexpectedly pregnant from being raped.
