However, a point to note is that at present she is only charged with the crime and hasn't yet been convicted, though the paternity of the child is pretty damning evidence.

I was raped by my ex and contracted herpes, I now have this for life and can say from personal experience having to pay for my meds each month, as well as taking them daily is a horrible reminder of his lack of respect for my body and what he did to me. Yes different to this case but if I was forced to pay HIM money instead I would probably not be here anymore. It's almost giving them a reward for what they did.
In this case I don't see him as a 'rape' victim per say and agree he should be made to pay but in normal rape cases that attitude is seriously messed up.

I'm not being particularly difficult here. But the opinions of rape or statutory rape in regards to the victim seem to differ greatly in our society based on the sex of said victim.
If the victim is a girl, she gets all the love a support in the world. But because it is a boy in this case, it's ok?
What's the difference?

How can a child's rights be ignored under any circumstances? Oh it must be an evil baby and deserve punishing hey? I'm out, that's atrocious.

From personal experience, and luckily no child was conceived, handing over money each month is simply a reminder of what he did to me, it took me months and an overdose attempt to finally start the medications I need and now I suffer finically each month as a result of HIS actions! I had no say, my wishes where ignored.

There is a reason statutory rape laws exist. The boy is 15 and while he might have consented, a 15yo child doesn't have a mature thought process that analyses the risks and consequences associated with unprotected sex. The only thing he was probably thinking about was getting off.
It doesn't matter that the female was 19 or 29- she is an adult, who should know better. Don't have sex with a child and use protection or deal with consequences. She chose to have unprotected sex with a child and chose to not use protection and now she has a baby. These are her choices, and she needs to deal with the consequences.
While the baby is a victim, he boys parents are right in being annoyed that he should have to pay child support- because he is also a victim. He fact they want custody of the baby to ensure a stable home life is a fantastic, and I hope they gain custody.

Home) were disappointed with the CHOICE their 15 year old made to get his rocks off at the first available opportunity (I don't for one minute believe the boy had to be pressured into having sex).

The only person who had the right to make the choice was the 19 year old woman. She had the choice to have unprotected sex with a child, or to not have unprotected sex with a child.
