Turns out there are multiple ways of obfuscating rape in the news.
This news story, for example.
[cut for child rape triggers]
Uh, what now? It’s the impregnation that’s the crime? So he didn’t rape her or anything, this was just felony contraceptive failure?
An Abbeville man pleaded guilty Tuesday to impregnating a girl when she was 9 years old. In January 2006, William Edward Ronca, who was 26 at the time, pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
Ronca was arrested after the girl was found to be seven to eight months pregnant. A school guidance counselor told the girl’s mother that the child was acting withdrawn and was not participating at school. The girl was taken to Abbeville County Memorial Hospital, where the pregnancy was confirmed.
Arrest warrants said that Ronca had been having sex with the girl for more than a year, and told her not to tell anyone.
The FUCK? “Having sex with” a nine-year-old? How do you “have sex with” a nine-year-old? Don’t mention the rape!
The story goes on:
At the time of the arrest, the mother told a newspaper that she did not know her daughter was pregnant.
In emotional testimony, the girl’s biological father said instead of enjoying her childhood, his 10-year-old daughter had to undergo a Caesarean section delivery.
He said his daughter will never be a child again — that every time she undresses and sees the stretch marks and scars from the surgery, she is reminded about what happened. The father cried as he said how difficult it was for him to watch his daughter giving birth and having a C-section at such a young age.
Or maybe, y’know, she’s traumatised because she was SYSTEMATICALLY RAPED FOR TWO YEARS OF HER CHILDHOOD. Not just because she has a few stretch marks and a scar.
He also admitted that the sexual relations with the child had been going on once or twice a week for about two years.
