Maryland Ending Parental Rights Of Rapists Who Impregnate

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — More than 10 years after supporters began pushing for it, Maryland's legislature has decided — with unanimous votes in the Senate and House — to enable impregnated rape victims to ask judges to end the parental rights of their rapists. Supporters say it has become embarrassing that a state known for its progressive politics is one of the last to adopt such a law.
