Rapists Rights: Thirty-one States Give Rapists the Same Rights as 'Legitimate' Fathers!
"In a rape case it is the victim, not the defendant, who is on trial." (Sir Matthew Hale)
The United States of America - the country that considers itself the global leader in - and educator of - principles such as freedom, fairness, and equal rights for all - actually consists of thirty-one States wherein a rapist is granted the exact same rights and respect as any 'Legitimate' Father!
Shawna Prewitt - a rape victim, lawyer, and author of "Giving Birth to a Rapists Child": A Discussion and analysis of the Limited Legal Protections Afforded to Women Who Become Mothers Through Rape" experienced this degradation first hand, and her story has since gone viral!
Hopefully, the powers that be in each and every one of those thirty-one states are listening - and learning!
Ms. Prewitt explains that AFTER enduring the life-altering horror that is rape - AND then discovering she is pregnant as a result of it - a woman can then be subjected to further shame, terror, and disbelief when she finds that the legal system in her state may not differentiate between - OR DISCRIMINATE AGAINST - the animal who raped and impregnated her - and ANY OTHER FATHER!
Odds are he will have every right to sue for custody and/or visitation - and she will only have whatever legal protection her money - if any - affords her!
These boys aren't exactly paying child support!
What they can do, however - is use this 'Get Out of Jail Free' card - found in 31 out of 50 States - to further intimidate an already traumatized woman into either dropping/lessening the charges - or not willingly testifying against them!
In this author's humble opinion - rapists should be entitled to the following rights:
- The Right to go to jail.
- The Right to a lobotomy.
- The Right to be raped, quid pro quo
I'd also like for the offender to have the choice!
