And not just in Alabama, either.
How crazy can people be anyhow?
And (as all too often, these days), it's a matter of men having power over women.
rapist's "parental rights"
What may be the most shocking instance of such a rapist's demand, involves a young woman who began to be raped by a family member beginning when she was a child of 12. This resulted in four pregnancies before she was 18. Now she has been faced with a successful demand by her rapist for shared parental rights of the two surviving children, including visitation.
Admirably and remarkably, she managed to create a stable life for the three of them. It's now endangered by the sickening ruling in favor of her incestuous rapist.
In Alabama, rapists can even be awarded not only co-parenting, but actually gain custody of a child of rape - one of two states with such a law.
