Dr Mike Adams professor at the University of North Carolina - Wilmington has a suggestion about a pregnancy as a result of rape. Since pro-choice people say the woman should be able to abort such a fetus, he proposes: Since the fetus is an innocent person resulting from the rape, why not take it out on the guilty party. When there are two innocent persons in the crime of rape, why should one of the innocent persons lose their life? If a life is to be taken it is only just that the guilty party be the one to suffer the loss of life.
He proposes that the law should be changed so that the person that commits a rape, that results in a pregnancy, that person would be executed. Since it would be a law, the decision to kill is taken out of the hands of a woman who is herself an innocent victim. Also, should she feel compassion for the father of her child and say he should go free, it would be out of her hands, the law takes over. A jury trial would decide if there were any extenuating circumstances. Finding a forceful, un-enticed, masculine over-powerment would result in a guilty verdict and execution.
I find this an interesting idea, punish the guilty. Perhaps it would be a deterrent to future rapists. It would certainly cut down on the repeating rapist, or the recidivist rapist that does a rape after leaving prison.
What do you think?
