13. A criminal trial is not enough. The rape victim should be
entitled to damages for civil damages for assault and battery. Senator Vitter should understand that. Obama who is a lawyer should have learned that in his first year of law school. Shame on them all. If the wording of the bill or amendment proposed by Senator Franken was not acceptable, then Senator Vitter or Obama should have proposed the wording they would have preferred. Shame on them.

And I will bet that Vitter pretends to be a Catholic and pretends to oppose abortion. What if the woman has a baby due to the rape? Isn't she due enough compensation from a party that facilitated or covered up the rape to permit her to take care of her child?
