It’s More Than Just a Rape

Recently, it seems as if everyone and their mother feels like they have something important to say about the issue of rape. In the midst of the political storm that was caused by this sudden burst of interest, one small voice has been all but drowned out–the voice of the rape victim.

Shauna R. Prewitt isn’t just a rape victim, she is also the proud mother of daughter who was conceived as a result of that rape, and a influential lawyer. Shauna is using her position and experience to educate the public about the issue of rape and as an advocate for rape victims. One issue she is drawing into the public eye is the fact that “in the vast majority of states — 31 — men who father through rape are able to assert the same custody and visitation rights to their children that other fathers enjoy.” (cite)
