Proposed Law: Rape Victims May Be Jailed If They Abort
Proposed Law: Rape Victims May Be Jailed If They Abort

The republican law maker in the state of Mexico has proposed a new law for rape victims to be actually forced to keep the baby if they fall pregnant as a result of rape.

The infant will serve as evidence in the case, the huff post reports according to this law make terminating the pregnancy (abortion) will be” tampering with evidence”

The draft legislation proposed by Cathrynn Brown would legally require victims of rape to carry their pregnancies to term so that the baby could be used as evidence during a sexual assault trial.

And a woman who terminated her pregnancy following an alleged rape would face being charged with a third-degree felony.

“Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime,” said the bill.

The woman could be jailed for up to three years if found guilty, according to the draft law, proposed. 

The New Mexico bill has little chance of becoming law because Democrats control both houses of the southwestern US state's legislature, but it will nevertheless have to be considered by elected representatives.

 

Can you imagine having to forcefully carry a rape baby? Not saying that rape victims should terminate pregnancy but the decision to keep or to terminate the child should be an individual’s choice not some ridiculous law by some states official.
