    Do you agree or disagree?
    I would think that if a man raped a woman, whether it resulted in a pregnancy or not, his shot at custody rights over any kids in the future should be revoked. As far as the Akin mess, Dems are turning it into a plus for Republicans by taking the opportunity to tout just how militantly pro-abortion they are.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    They are hoping to draw that militant feminist base out to vote, the bad economy and other factors will probably dampen dem turnout this election, so that are doing what they can to get that base angry enough to turn out.

It goes without saying that they should put the older females in jail and give the kid to the minor male and never allow the female contact with said child. Neither one.
    So if an 18 year old has consensual sex with a 17 year old and the female becomes pregnant, the 18 year old should be sent to prison for 18+ years and should never have any visitation rights???????

    Statutory Rape is often a very different issue. Many cases of your example remain loving relationships.

    Rape itself is one of the most heinous crimes.

    Where's the list of states - because there are 31 states I realize I don't want to associate with. . . I bet you one is ****ing Arkansas - god, I hope not.

    No parental rights. That means no child support, either. Sorry, can't have it both ways. The exchange of money legitimizes the relationship. Pick one.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Well, that seems to be the law. Then again, if the 29 year old teacher gets pregnant when she rapes the 17 year old boy, then the same swift ans sure justice must ensue. The boy gets the kid and the teacher gets the 18 years, correct? Am I missing something or is the issue somewhat less clear.

    I can't believe that. Hopefully, no judge in his or her right mind would ever allow this.

    Here are the states.

    Why Do Rapists Have Custody & Visitation Rights in These 31 States? | The Stir

    "Which 31 states are we talking about? These are the states where we have some work to do. Daily Kos was able to get a little info on this. If I'm reading this correctly and their info is good, the following states have laws or provisions that at least limit a rapists' visitation and custody rights: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Missouri (Akin's state: "biological father's guilty plea or conviction of forcible rape of the birth mother is conclusive evidence to termination of his rights"), Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin.

    The rest of you states: You're on notice. Let's fix this: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming."

    Under most circumstances, no the father should not be allowed any visitation rights.

    This isn't 'boyfriend/girlfriend had a baby . . . ' this is 'asshole raped woman and knocked her up and she was strong enough to have the baby and now he wants to violate her life some more because destroying her soul wasn't enough'
