    Hell, no!

    A man who commits forcible rape should be in solitary confinement on death row for the rest of his short ass miserable life.

    Well - I don't support the death penalty - there are some men out there who are falsely accused, unfortunately. I can't stomach that notion. Not worth it.

    I can imagine it would almost be impossible for a woman to fight a custody battle if she were date/acquaintance raped or if she didn't want the trauma of going to court.
    The woman who wrote the article isn't very believable.

    Do you think she was raped?

    Why or why not?

    Do you agree or disagree?
    Agree. Nothing illustrates any more clearly how out of touch with the people our politicians really are. There is no excuse for 31 states failing to protect a rape victim and her child.

    When it comes to forcible rape (I'm not commenting on "statuary" rape situations) the rapist should be in prison, so it should be a moot point. However, forcing a woman who was forcibly raped and still chooses to carry the child to term to have that rapist insinuated in her life forever is such a heinous thought that my mind not only boggles, it literally gags at the notion.

    A convicted rapist should have a lifetime restraining order for his victim and his victim's child. Anything less is unconscionable.

    that's what I'll stick to. forcible yes, 18/17 and we were both drunk and in the morning she was embarrassed rapes no.

    What interests me here is that in most cases of rape the convicted is supposed to be prohibited by law from contacting the victim iirc, and with good reason. I would think that a law enforcing parental rights for a person convicted of forcible rape directly contradicts the former and given that the disgusting aspects of continual psychological trauma should be enough to invalidate any rights claims of said rapist just the law prohibiting harassment after the fact should suffice. All in all I just don't get why a rapist should even be out of prison much less have any claim to parental rights.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Exactly, I don't think there are that many "save face" claims but that should be taken into account during the trial, but after a conviction unless appealed that's definitely the line.

    Well that's cute.
