If a woman is raped, and Sarah Palin has her way, does the rapist get
paternal rights???

I mean after he gets out of jail.

What about incest?

8. I didn't know this. I am astonished and repulsed. I simply do not understand it.

3. Well, in Wasilla, Sarah's police chief made rape victims PAY for the rape kit test.

4. Hell, she'd probably give him custody because the mom
was such a loose woman.

6. If you get raped, you pay for it. Bitch.
I've never seen a more anti-woman woman in my lifetime. Honestly. She is an atrocity.

7. Yeah they do. Apparently it already is legal for a rapist to have paternal rights.
Or that is what I heard. So as frightening and disturbing as that is, it's a fact.

11. it's a question that Joe should ask her in the debate...
"Gov. Palin, you believe women should have the baby no matter what, correct? Okay, so you believe even if they're sexually assaulted, the same thing? Okay, so you do know that the rapist's would have custody rights in xx states, right?" and when she finishes just say, "I rest my case with this, it's very disheartening for me to hear that if the ladies who I care about in my life were raped that Gov Palin thinks they should have a rapist's baby and give him CUSTODY to have parental rights to that child!"

12. Personally, I would never have the child of a rapist...
because it would be a constant reminder of of a horrific experience. Even if there was a law against abortion, I would never, ever, ever have that kid. I would find a way to abort. I guess Sarah thinks people would always send the kid out for adoption. I wonder if she has any clue of how many kids there are in foster homes right now. This is something they never think about.
