Here’s your chance to send Kansas Rep. Pete DeGraaf a spare tire for comparing rape pregnancies to car trouble

Yesterday, we told you how Kansas state Rep. Pete DeGraaf compared planning for the possibility of a rape pregnancy with special “abortion only” health insurance to keeping a spare tire in your trunk in case of a flat. Because let’s face it, ladies, it’s going to happen.

Yet many of you thought this analogy was insensitive, stupid and demeaning to rape victims. Around 28,000 of you, the last time I checked Facebook. Now there’s a way to express your anger at DeGraaf’s remarks (and voting record) while promoting women’s rights. This morning, the Kansas chapter of the National Organization for Women launched a campaign to send DeGraaf spare tires.
