Until your credibility is challenged and the excuses come out: "She was dressed provocatively." "They were intoxicaated and couldn't control themselves" "She said she wanted it"
There is also a thing called consensual/marital rape where one partner in the relationship uses forced sex to keep the other with them, despite their denial. It can also be used as a rapist's defense, especially when coming from ex-husbands/boyfriends who use it for revenge.
Many United States rape statutes formerly precluded the prosecution of spouses, including estranged or even legally separated couples. In 1975, South Dakota removed this exception. In 1993, North Carolina became the last state to remove the spousal exemption. However, as of 1999, 33 of 50 U.S. states regarded spousal rape as a lesser crime [Bergen, 1999]. The perpetrator may be charged with related crimes such as assault, battery, or spousal abuse. There are other criminal charges that may be inapplicable to married couples. For example, in the U.S., there is a marriage exemption to the charge of statutory rape even if one of the spouses is under the age of consent in the jurisdiction where the sexual act takes place.

Rape is devilish. Let me say that. One of my immediate family members was raped a few years ago. I knocked the dude out who did it.
With that said, this bill doesn't offend me. In my opinion, there would be MANY out-of-wedlock mothers who would claim she was raped to get benefits. Especially if there was no proof, and the "rapist" didn't need to be named.
With that said, I think there should be federally funded therapy for women who claim to have been raped. But if any women with newborn can go to the government for benefits by accusing rape, I can't agree with that. That leaves too much room for scam artists.edit on 31-10-2012 by capone1 because: (no reason given)
+edit is evidence of a crime a violation of privacy? I really don't know. I am not trying to be a smart @^$

Condoms are one of the most unreliable methods of birth control out there.
Who really cares? I mean something like this I may not agree with, but with America's Male Rape Culture(American's love it when little boy's, young men and men are raped, especially if they are raped in prison) why I should really care?
Ohh wait America is a gynocentric Matriarchy. Gal's wanted a gender war well they got it. The really messed up thing about it is, the only thing the average guy has to do to fight back against the oppressive gynocentric society, is simply ignore it.
