    They just banned any insurance companies who offer coverage for abortion in their general plans and are arguing over whether to leave in place coverage in the cases of rape or when the woman's health is at risk.
    This disgusting creature is one of the representatives arguing against that coverage. He does not support the abortion only coverage, either.

    Last Friday, Kansas legislators approved a ban on insurance companies offering abortion coverage as part of their general health plans. The one exception: when a woman's life is at risk.

    DeGraaf, who is in his first term and who is an associate pastor, also called for banning coverage for abortions of rape pregnancies. (Women could get around this if they purchased separate, "abortion-only policies.")

      Especially the part right after the bolded sentence.  That's the policy they are expected to buy.

      I refuse to represent my political beliefs using numbers. It isn't accurate, nor is it helpful. But I'm around a -10 on both scales.

        There are no such policies available at this time.
