    We have 85% agreement on this issue when a man rapes a woman. Now let's see if we have a sexist forum.

    I think exactly the same justice should be applied.
    If the rape victim can carry the child to term, then he should get to decide.

    Main thing is, she shouldn't be allowed to sue him for child support.

    If she raped him, then no way. Must be even harder to prove for the guy because a lot of people would probably not believe him.

    No longer a simple answer with 85% agreement. Yet, justice should be the same.

    Let's see if I understand you. If a woman rapes a man (through threat, weapon, whatever), becomes pregnant by that man and carries the baby to term, are you asking if her maternal rights should be abolished and the man should have sole discretion on how the child is raised, and who raises it?

    If that is what you mean, then my answer is yes. If there was justice in the world, the woman would be in prison for the rape and should be legally restrained from ever contacting her victim or his child again.

    See, and I disagree with that-- a woman should never have her parental rights involuntarily severed except as a consequence of harm (or potential harm) done to the child. If she conceives a child by raping a man, she should do time for the rape-- but she's still the child's mother.

    then you agree with the idea that a rapist SHOULD have parental rights? or is that only if it is the mother? (A sexist idea if EVER I have heard one.)

    THAT isnt the question, if the child is concieved by her raping a man, and is brought to term should she has visitation and custody rights?

    Only if it's the mother. You want to call me sexist, go for it-- biology is sexist. The mother bears all of the responsibility and the hardship of gestating and delivering the child; it is by virtue of those acts that parental rights naturally reside with her, and not by the act of conception.
