Reason #1,386,942 to Support Legalized Abortion

(And not support parental notification restrictions.)

Father of the Year:

A 55-year-old Lawrenceville man has been charged with raping and impregnating his 16-year-old daughter, and with raping his 19-year-old mentally disabled stepdaughter…

The matter became a case for the Special Victims Unit of the Gwinnett Police Department after Connelly's estranged wife took their 16-year-old daughter to a hospital. After tests confirmed the girl's pregnancy, she stated that she had been sexually assaulted by her father, according to GPD spokesman Cpl. Darren Moloney.

The investigation revealed that Connelly may have also molested his stepdaughter and that the abuse had been going on for several years, Moloney said. In 2002, Connelly was charged with battery, but Moloney said the disposition of that charge was not available.

The 19-year-old is not pregnant, but she is both mentally and physically disabled.
Please note this scenario does not meet the parameters for abortion as laid out by infamous South Dakota legislator Bill Napoli, who would support the termination of the incestuous pregnancy only if the 16-year-old had been “brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated.” Since the abuse had been going on for several years, the girl probably wasn’t a virgin, and doesn’t appear to have been “savaged” or “sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it.” She may be religious, and is definitely impregnated, but having the bad luck of carrying her father’s spawn instead of an unknown but brutal rapist, she doesn’t deserve access to an abortion, should she want it. Luckily, she lives in Georgia, where women are still vaguely autonomous creatures and Bill Napoli isn’t in charge of determining what’s best for their bodies and lives.
