The Right To Choose... Rape?

Aside from the obvious fact that rape is a moral issue (and one can’t legislate morality), pro-abortion reasoning provides 10 additional reasons for making rape legal. I have enumerated all of them below. I have even taken the time to expand on some of the more disturbing arguments:

1. It is uncertain where consent ends and force begins. Because that is largely a religious question that cannot be determined by science, it has no place in our criminal statutes. Such determinations are also influenced by culture and no one culture is superior to another.

2. Every year thousands of men commit the crime of rape in back alleys. This is a less-than-ideal situation. In fact, it is a problem that requires a legislative solution. Everyone knows that back alleys are unclean environments. And everyone knows that people have a right to commit crimes in safe and sterile environments - even if this means decriminalizing an act that has been unlawful for time immemorial.

3. Women are smaller than men and therefore cannot be said to possess the same rights as their male counterparts. When people suggest that our rights vary with body size it really makes a mess of human equality. But it has been said that some animals are more equal than others.

4. Every man has a right to choose what to do with his own body. It would therefore be unfair to restrict bodily autonomy by restricting a man’s choice of violence. It would be hypocritical to apply force to him simply because he chose to apply force to another living entity.

5. Every man has a right to control his own reproductive choices. Reproductive freedom is a basic human right. This much is self-evident.

Actually an awesome article

Actually an awesome article that turns the lefts argument for protecting abortion on its head.

Progressives never want tot acknowledge the million dollar question that preventative legislation never really accomplishes what it is intended to do. Because humans are imperfect creatures and will continue to F-up no matter the number of laws or devices we are armed with.

ie
Make roads safer... yet people still die in car wrecks. (human error)
Make offshore drilling more restrictive... spills will still occur (human error)

Read your comments. Looking to agree on something :-)

Should a women be allowed to shoot a rapist to prevent forced entry and possible infection.

What's the choice? Kill the man or kill his baby?

Say no and mean it. Srop abortion at the source. No government needed.

My say in this matter is limited. It the Y Chromsone thing.

I agree "Reproductive freedom is a basic human right"

Free includes debt-free!

I think this is a gutsy article

that shows how disgusting abortion really is.

What the heck?

Did the three of you that voted this down even bother to read the whole article?
