The Most Misogynistic Law I've Ever Seen

When I was 18, I was raped.
Prior to this month, I could probably count the number of people that knew that about me on one hand. It isn't something I had ever wanted to discuss publicly, much less bring into my role as the leader of the Democrats in the Michigan Senate, but as Republicans in our state were moving to push an offensive new proposal into law that would require women to buy "rape insurance" in the event they were to become pregnant after being sexually assaulted, I felt compelled to speak out for the first time.
