If you live in Michigan, I suppose you'll want to add "rape insurance" to your Christmas list. Because that's a thing now. Seriously. I can't even make this stuff up anymore.
On Wednesday, Michigan legislature passed a law that prevents insurance plans from covering abortion, unless the woman's life is in danger. The "Abortion Insurance Opt-Out Act" was created to prevent the pro-life populous from "paying for something they disagree with. So...does this mean I can get a bonus on my tax return for the majority of George Bush's presidency?
Of course, Michigan was oh-so-kind in their inclusion of an "abortion rider." This extra lil' piece can be purchased by woman or an employer and covers abortions in cases where the woman's life is not at risk. You know, for rape n' incest n' stuff.
So if you plan on being the victim of a horrific, violent crime in the near future, I suggest you give your insurance a ring-a-ling and let them know what the deal is so you won't have to mortgage your house to fix it when the inevitable happens. While you're at it, why not purchase that shanking insurance that's so popular these days? I hear it makes a great stocking stuffer.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go vomit up everything I have eaten in the past ten years.
