Via Jonathan Turley, I learned that in Morocco, the penal code exempts a man from punishment for rape if he agrees to marry the victim!
As if that was not bad enough for the woman, one 16-year old who underwent such a marriage committed suicide because of the subsequent abuse she suffered at the hands of her rapist husband.
It is incredible that such practices still exist.
Over here, we have Rick Santorum arguing that women who become pregnant as a result of rape should be forced to have the baby because it is still a “gift from God”.
The sheer callousness towards women of religion and its adherents never ceases to amaze me.
