    If a man fathers a child through rape, should he have visitation or custody[W:56]

    I just found out the following:

    [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.

    Raped, pregnant and ordeal not over - CNN.com
    Now, I am thoroughly disgusted. I am disgusted because I don't think a woman should not be forced to interact with her rapist for the rest of her life. Moreover, I don't think a child should be, even partially, raised by someone so disgusting and who has an inherently toxic relationship with them and their mother.

    Do you agree or disagree?

    Absolutely not. If a woman becomes pregnant through rape, the fetus should be aborted, and the criminal thrown in prison for the majority of his life.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Mr. Akins is gods gift to the Democrap party.

    The Repugnantcans have some good things to offer. But they are de-legitimized by this moron mentality that keeps them chasing abortion rights instead of addressing the more important issues that affect everyone.

    No as he's already demonstrated violent and asocial behaviors that would inhibit him from acting in the child's best interests well before the birth of said child. Hard to believe this is both a regular legal practice and yet unbeknownst to so many.

    I couldn't agree more. I wish this were a moot point, as any rapist would be in prison longer than 18 years.

    He should be in prison with pretty much zero rights to anything.

    Beyond just the fact that he violated someone's rights by committing a heinous act which right there should grant him nothing it would be IMO psychological trauma for a rapist to have any right to still have contact with the person he violated. I can't fathom putting a woman through the extended trauma of having to release the child to the person responsible for it through no consent of hers. I agree TPD, it's disgusting.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Wow, this is beyond sick.

    Convicted rapists should spend their lives in prison. If for some reason that doesn't happen, they should certainly have no right to the child of the woman they raped. The woman doesn't deserve to be repeatedly traumatized for the rest of her life, and children shouldn't be left alone with psychopaths.
