Repeal Michigan's Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law A.K.A Rape Insurance

As a woman living in Michigan, I was shocked to see this bill come into law. This mysoginistic, and discrimatory law states that if a woman wishes to have an abortion, she must have separate insurance or else she must pay out of pocket for the $245-$695+ medical proceedure; even in cases of rape or incest.

This outragous bill, is blaming victims of rape/incest of the actions of their attacker and is punishing them by forcing them to carry a child they do not want. It is also forcing women to anticipate that they will be sexually assualted. Abortions are a woman's health issue and should be treated as such, it should be covered by insurance regardless of what special interest religious groups say. 

Their petition was able to go pass Governor Rick Snyder's veto with only 3% of Michgian's population signing it. 3% that's not even 300,000 people from Michigan!

These special interests groups are forcing their religious ideals and practices upon those who do not even support that religious practice. They're using the clause that they shouldn't have to pay for something they don't believe in; which again is forcing people to follow their religious beliefs. 

Please sign your name and help in the cause of getting the Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law repealed. Tell Michigan's Senators that we will not stand for this bill and we demand this bill be repealed!

A woman's body is her own to control, no one else's. Tell lawmakers to stop trying to regulate what happens with a woman's body.

To:
Michigan State Senate
Gov. Rick Snyder, Michigan
State Sen. Glenn Anderson, Michigan-006
State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan-023
Repeal Michigan's Abortion Insurance Opt-Out law A.K.A Rape Insurance, this bill is not within the best interest of women and is forcing them to carry a child they do not want. Abortions are a women's health issue and should be treated as such, it should be covered by insurance regardless of what special interest religious groups say.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This is a ridiculous, bullshit "law". It's putting the "responsibility" to not get raped on women, which is utterly horrendous. No one should be put through this complete victimization. Being raped is bad enough without needing to figure out if you'd bought proper insurance coverage for it.

      This is the most repugnant bill I've ever heard of in my lifetime. Any person who played a part in it passing should be ashamed of themselves.

      I have never endured rape, but I cannot imagine the pain of those that have. To be forced to carry a baby, is cruel and unusual PUNISHMENT for a VICTIM. Plus that chils may end up hated or unloved by its mother or lost in the social system if given up for adoption. The choice of abortion should only be made by the victim, not those that stood and raped/victimized them a second time by forcing our will on them.
