I was reading through some of your posts, and found this statement you made:
“In the United States, spousal rape/other forms of abuse are illegal & women can file charges & exit the relationship. Women are not bound to men if they are abusing them, whether they are pregnant or not.”
Actually, in 31 U.S. states, there are laws making it possible for a rapist or abuser to seek custody – binding the woman and/or child to him for life. Whether abortion is legal or illegal, we need to change THAT.
My comments were based on intimate, day-to-day relationships. If children are involved, then there may be some form of contact, but this does not constitute a personal relationship.
I do agree 100% that a rapist, spousal or otherwise, should have ZERO access to the woman he raped or any child conceived as a result of that rape. This must be changed and all sides of this debate should work to make it a reality by supporting H.R. 2772, Rape Survivor Child Custody Act, currently in committee with the United States Congress.
All human rights violations, including abortion, should be tirelessly fought against until the day we are free from our own depraved human nature. Until the day we embrace a culture of life that all newly conceived human beings can be welcomed into.
