Edit: I was aware when I made the post that "get over it" the title is slightly insensitive. But ladies let's come up with a new term for this experience. The definition of rape recentlyt been amended by Attorney General Eric holder.
Birth Rape would accurately fall under this definition. Previously rape was defined as : the crime, committed by a person, of forcing another personL to have sexual intercourse by the threat or use of violence. The legal definition varys from state to state but most define rape with the use of violence or threat. Should a doctor wake you before they check your cervix? Hell yes. You should be told of what they are going to do to you, as it is your body. But are they violently and maliciously taking from you? I seriously doubt it. I think most medical professionals are just doing there job and are not "getting off" on the discomfort of the woman in labor. And by no means does it minimize what a rape victim might feel going through a "birth rape" but to seriously consider filing charges and classifying it a rape and putting the doctor with a lack in judgement in the same category as the guy who jumps out of the bush and RAPEs a jogger is rediculous. And IMO people who use the term " birth rape" are just as insitive for using that term.
