Michigan Passes Abortion Insurance Law That Liberals Call Rape Insurance

On Wednesday, the Michigan state legislature passed the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act and instantly liberal Democrats are twisting the purpose to promote their baby killing agenda.

The new bill bans abortion from being part of any standard health insurance policy unless the woman’s health is at risk.  The reason behind the bill is to prevent people like Christians from being forced to pay for abortions when they believe it violates their faith.  If a woman wants to have an abortion covered by insurance, then she can purchase a rider to her policy that covers abortion.

Last year, the same bill was passed by the legislature, but Republican Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed the bill.  He said that it wasn’t fair to any woman who got pregnant from being raped to tell her that she needed to plan ahead and purchase abortion insurance before being raped.

Right to Life of Michigan then went on a petition drive and collected over 300,000 signatures to force the anti-abortion insurance bill to be voted on a second time.  Due to the signatures collected, when both the state House and Senate voted to approve the bill, it automatically became law without needing the governor’s signature.

Liberal Democrats don’t see the bill for its original intent.  Instead, they are twisting it by calling it the Rape Insurance Bill.  Gretchen Whitmer (D) Senate Minority Leader commented about the bill saying:

“This tells women who were raped … that they should have thought ahead and planned for it.  Make no mistake, this is anything but a citizens’ initiative. It’s a special interest group’s perverted dream come true.”

The media, known for being the public mouthpiece for the ultra-liberal left, also jumped on the Democrat’s bandwagon, by twisting the anti-abortion insurance bill into the rape insurance bill:

According to a study by the Guttmacher Institute, there are eight other states that have passed anti-abortion measures that ban standard insurance policies from providing abortion coverage.  Only two of those states provide the abortion riders similar to what the Michigan bill provides.

Using the logic the liberal use, a person who is robbed of all their money should then have the right to go and rob someone else or a bank to make up for their loss.  Or perhaps another way to look at, if someone beats you up; you should have the right to murder a relative of that person because of their assault on you.  If this sounds ludicrous, it is, but that is the very same logic used to justify the murder of an unborn child who is the product of rape.  The child did nothing to justify being murdered.

I would also like to see what these liberal Democrats and media mouthpieces say if they were to meet someone like Pam Stenzel.  Her mom was raped when she was 15 years old.  Stenzel became pregnant from the rape, but instead of murdering her unborn baby for something it was not guilty of, she gave the baby up for adoption.  There are thousands of couples in the US that are trying and wanting to adopt a baby and this baby went to one of those couples that raised and loved it.

Listen to Pam Stenzel tell her story and then tell me if you still believe what the Democrats and media are saying.  Should a woman who has been raped have the right to murder her innocent unborn child for something that child had nothing to do with?
