Tell Kansas State Rep. DeGraaf to apologize for comparing rape to a flat tire!

To be delivered to The Kansas State House

Petition Statement

Kansas State Representative Pete Degraaf said in a House debate that women should "plan ahead" for being raped and added that planning for rape is similar to having a spare tire on one's car. Rep. DeGraaf's terrible analogy is deeply offensive and disrespectful to all victims of sexual assault. He should apologize.
