4. Rape, repubs and visitation.

View profile
What people don't realize is a rapist if convicted will serve about 5 years in jail.

If the victim is forced by the government to bear the child, the rapist can apply for visitation after he gets out of prison.

If the rapist is convicted of a lesser crime, sexual battery for example, he'll serve about two years in prison.

Then he can apply for visitation.

If the rapist isn't prosecuted... there's nothing but bad news for the victim and the child.

The perpetrator or convicted felon can apply for visitation at their local Family Court AND the court will side with the perpetrator AGAINST the mother.

At the expense of the taxpayer the judge may appoint an advocate or even an attorney to aid the perpetrator or felon in securing visitation through the court.

Imagine the victim being FORCED by the Court to turn the child over to their rapist every other weekend, half the summer and every other Christmas.

What do the republicans have to say about this?
