 The ReVictimazation of Sexual Assault Survivors: Rapist and Parental Rights

Did you know?

There are more than 30 or 40 states that have enacted laws  regarding parental rights and preparators of sexual assaults. Around 32,000 women each year become pregnant after being raped. At least one-third of them go on to raise that child in certain states, rapist have the right to pursue parental rights of a child conceived as a result of rape or they can sue for custody of their child.


OR

 There are about 22 states that allow for termination of parental rights ONLY if the rapist is convicted of rape?Some states like Hawaii still require child support even if rights have been terminated.


On last weeks, This Is Life With Lisa Ling, the host sat down with some sexual assault survivors  who struggles to understand how their rapist received legal rights to visit their children.  You might be wondering, how is that even possible, shouldn't there be laws that protect the victim and her child, aren't they afraid the rapist might commit the same crime again; maybe towards the victim or their child? Can't  rapist use this opportunity to coerce the victim and control their every movement?  How do you co-parent with your rapist? These are some of the things many victims of sexual assault have to deal with,  Lisa Ling delves into all of this and more in This Is Life--Sins Of The Father

Interesting Fact: While many states have legislation designed to make it easier for raped women to have abortions or put their babies up for adoption, only a small number of states have passed legislation specifically designed to restrict the rapist father’s parental rights when the victim mother decides to keep her baby.
