"If a woman has [the right to abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t result in anyone’s death."
-Something Maine lawmaker Lawrence Lockman actually said
i think my brain melted from all this stupidity
I’m sorry, what?
This is ridiculous. First of all, about 4% of rapes in the United States end in murder. Not to mention the ones that end in suicide.
“Fifty-six percent of women who experience any partner violence and/or rape are diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. Twenty-nine percent of all women who attempt suicide were battered, 37% of battered women have symptoms of depression, 46% have symptoms of anxiety disorder, and 45% experience post-traumatic stress disorder”
Is that not stealing someones life?
And what if the baby from the pregnancy that is being aborted is the result of a woman’s rape? She would have a reminder of the most traumatic experience of her life, every day.
People need to learn the facts before they say shit like this.
