  •  Utter insanity: (7+ / 0-)
    A Republican lawmaker in New Mexico introduced a bill on Wednesday that would legally require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a sexual assault trial.
    And what about rape victims who don't become pregnant? What is used for evidence for a sexual assault trial in their cases? Or does this ignorant woman believe that only women who become pregnant as a result of rape have truly been raped?

    You know, that whole thing about shutting down the mechanism....

    Being the single intellectual in a village of 1,100 souls ain't much fun, especially when 1,099 of those don't think you're all that smart.--Lucy Marsden

      raped by Dad, Grandpa or their drunk uncle.  You may thing girls who are not sexually mature enough to be sexually developed aren't raped, but go back and read the list of child sexual abusers in your neighborhohood. Yes,, it happens and when it happens it's usually someone within the family prepertuating the abuse.
