a wake-up call

23 Aug

In light of the national conversation about rape – and while it’s an ugly topic, it is a very real topic for all women and deserves the national dialogue – this is the first I’ve heard of another side to the story.

What laws are in place to protect the woman pregnant as a result of a rape after the child is born?  As Shauna Prewitt so heartbreakingly writes, in 31 states, not many.

A must read.  And a wake-up call to those 31 state legislatures.  And time for women to start insisting – loudly – that these legislators need to do just that.
