Rapists Sue for Custody and Visitation

Bradley Mattes   |   July 10, 2014

Women who are raped and become pregnant experience a great deal of pressure to abort their babies.  Those who choose life for their babies are heroes in my book.  But did you know in about half of the states the rapist can actually sue for custody and visitation rights?  It’s absolutely outrageous!  Shauna Prewitt was one such woman who ultimately prevailed in court.  This motivated her to get a law degree and push for corrective legislation in all fifty states.  Just think how many more women would let their babies live if they knew they’d be safe from legal action by the person who viciously assaulted them.  See the list below to see where your state stands, and visit Hope After Rape Conception for help in protecting women from legal attacks after the brutal physical ones, including legal challenges by rapists for custody and visitation rights.

States that do not protect women from legal attacks after physical ones: Alabama, Maryland, Rhode Island, Alaska, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Arizona, Minnesota, Virginia, Georgia, Mississippi, Washington, Hawaii, Nebraska, Wyoming, Indiana, New Mexico, Iowa, New York, Kansas, North Dakota, Kentucky, Ohio.
