From Michelle Alexander (civil rights lawyer, legal scholar, author of The New Jim Crow, and all around total badass): “During my second year in law school, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that many worried would overturn the constitutional right to abortion established by Roe v. Wade. I recall some male law students arguing that abortion bans wouldn’t be so bad, so long as there were exceptions made in cases of rape. I wondered how a “rape exception” to an abortion ban could possibly help women like me, who did not want to report a rape to the police and who could not possibly prove that a rape occurred if the man denied it. Criminal cases take months, even years, to be resolved. Would abortions be allowed based on mere allegations of rape without any proof? If not, what would a woman have to prove in a matter of days or weeks to get an abortion in the first trimester? How could she overcome the inevitable denial? What man would admit to rape knowing that he’d face a likely prison sentence?” . . . . She so eloquently explains why it’s absolutely absurd to think exceptions for rape are a viable option for rape survivors. How many women do you know who have been raped? And how many of those women reported to the police or the university? And of those who reported—how many of them actually won the case? Republicans’ lack of concern for women (in the US and abroad) and their rights, wellbeing, and livelihoods has existed... throughout time. Why do we think that’s suddenly changed?
