LONDON (Reuter) -- Worried about sex with space aliens?
A British broker claimed on Friday [Aug 23] to have become the first insurer in the world to offer a policy against impregnation by beings from another planet.
It took a nuclear strike by Earth's American-led forces to beat off the aliens in the blockbuster film "Independence Day," but earthlings now can buy financial compensation for the alien sexual embrace.
Specialist broker Goodfellow Rebecca Ingrams Pearson (GRIP) said for 100 pounds ($155) a year adults living in Britain could insure against two sorts of extraterrestrial interference.
Abduction by aliens would net the victim 100,000 pounds and impregnation -- a risk against which both men and woman can insure -- doubles that sum.
"I personally would not buy a policy of this nature, because I don't think the risk is commensurate with the premium," said GRIP managing director Simon Burgess. "But if there is the fear of these things out there, we are justified in offering to cover people against them."
Some U.S. insurers, cashing in on "Independence Day`" fever, and on recent evidence that life may have existed on Mars, have offered policies covering abduction by aliens.
But until now, Burgess said, it has been impossible to insure against being impregnated by a being from another planet.
[CNI News assumes that the insurer would pay only for indisputable -- "proven" -- cases of abduction. We wonder if they would pay for a "pre-existing condition"? If so, perhaps Travis Walton or some similarly well-documented abductee should take out the policy, then present the evidence!]
