In its essence, this bill puts the decision-making power about abortion square in the hands of the male who made the woman pregnant (unless she suffered “legitimate rape”).
Brattin reveals a shocking lack of insight into rape victimology by suggesting that there is such a thing as illegitimate rape, and that it is as easy to report and prove “legitimate” rape as it is a robbery. This man is a pioneer of the re-victimisation of rape victims and of reproductive extremism.
In practice, this bill allows a woman’s assailant to overturn the woman’s own will regarding a process happening in her own body. Talk about crossing a line…this crosses the page.
