In light of the other thread going about the 15 year old being forced to pay CS I'm curious as what others think in regards to a victim being forced to pay CS? I am not talking statutory rape here, I am talking any rape, including spousal rape.
As a victim of spousal rape with my ex and catching the herpes virus which now impacts me both financially and health wise for the rest of my life I am dead against a victim being forced to pay under any circumstances. I could not imagine if I had to pay him each month for something that I did not want and tried to fight him off, it was his choice to do this to me and as a result I am out of pocket, but he went into with full knowledge that what he did put me at risk.
Now this did not result in a baby but if the positions where reversed and a male was forced into sex which resulted in a baby, do the rights of the baby really come into play? Or do the rights of a victim overrule?
Personally I think a rape charge and having that baby put into care is the best option, not a reminder of how the victim was violated and then have it be financial burdened for the next 18 years.
Sorry if this doesn't make sense, I'm sick as a dog today, but interested to see what others think?
