    Default Rapist sues for parental rights

    You see, nine months after my rape, I gave birth to a beautiful little girl. You could say she was conceived in rape; she was. But she is also so much more than her beginnings. I blissfully believed that after I finally had decided to give birth to and to raise my daughter, life would be all roses and endless days at the playground. I was wrong again.

    It would not be long before I would learn firsthand that in the vast majority of states -- 31 -- men who father through rape are able to assert the same custody and visitation rights to their children that other fathers enjoy. When no law prohibits a rapist from exercising these rights, a woman may feel forced to bargain away her legal rights to a criminal trial in exchange for the rapist dropping the bid to have access to her child.

    The guy has no case, everyone knows a woman cannot get pregnant when raped.

    It's science.

    All right... looks like it's high time to open the official rape and abortion thread. Voivods got my head spinning these last few days.

    Yeah, really, what's up with all the abortion threads lately?

    As for this case, there should definitely be a law that prohibits the convicted rapist from visiting the child. That's just stupid.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    The story is much more about the legal issue involved in such a case. Even if he went to jail he'd be able to fight for the right to see "his child" in many states.

    However,few states have passed special laws to aid the large number of raped women who choose to raise their rape-conceived children. Without such laws, a man who fathers a child through rape has the same custody and visitation privileges regarding that child as does the father of a child not conceived through rape. Moreover, as a result of this legal absence, raped women and their children are left to face substantial and potentially terrible consequences.

    Correct. Her feminine juices wouldn't allow her to be impregnated. A Republican member of the House Committee on Science and Technology told me so...

    Right. Let me get this straight. A considerable number of people in powerful positions are opposed to women being permitted to have abortions, even when raped. And YET they then want those raped women to re-live their ordeal by being forced to allow their rapist to see the child (and presumably themselves) over and over again? My GOD, surely anyone can see that even the possibility of that happening would cause even the most pro-life of rape victims to consider an abortion???

    This is misogyny at its WORST. Being raped is heinous enough - but to then punish that poor woman for it by making the 'man' who did the deed a constant and enduring presence in her and her child's life is just repugnant! I find it hard to believe that anyone would consider this sequence of events remotely fair and just...Furthermore, I'd argue that the rapist forfeited his 'rights' when he took away those of his victim.

    It's very simple dribblekins. Here's how it works in the mind of a few fucktards.

    1. Man rapes woman. OK. Bad, but if she had been married or dressed more appropriately, she might have been alright.

    2. Woman gets pregnant. Well, holy shit. Her body would have sorted that problem out. She is, without question, a complete and utter fucking tart. It was not a legitimate rape.

    3. Woman does not want rapist's baby. Oh well. Sorry about that. No can do sweetcheeks. Your fault. God said so.

    4. Doctor gets shot by new Sheriff in town. Because, of course, deadly force should be authorised for doctors who do such "evil" deeds.

    5. Rapist wants vistation rights. He's the dad for fuck's sake. He has rights too.

    6. Country continues downward spiral. Self explanatory I guess.

    7. Kid becomes criminal. I can't be arsed to explain this one, but just check out the statistics on crime rates compared to the intro of Roe vs Wade. Maybe only a correlation. But I don't think so.

    8. Kid becomes rapist. Or right wing minister with dubious beliefs. Similar maybe.

    Rinse and repeat.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I doubt there's a "rapist lobby" out there preventing legislation over this, it's just a matter of getting it through a committee and getting it voted on. It's one of those pieces of legislation that shouldn't have to written, but apparently it does in this effed up world of ours.

    All it takes is one person to propose this legilation and I guarantee it would pass easily--in fact I would be shocked if anyone voted against it.

    I apologise bsbll4 - it's late and I've spent the day in the hospital with my sprog so please excuse my jellified brain! I can't work out if you're saying that laws granting rapists the right to see their offspring will or won't get the go-ahead...I'm afraid Graeme was right when he referred to me as "Dribblekins" as that's basically what I'm doing now whilst I struggle to make sense of just about any written word!
