Bill would force rapists to pay child support, terminate custody

A bill that would force convicted rapists to pay child support toward victims who bear their children has progressed to the next step of the Pennsylvania legislative process. Current law allows women to seek the severance of a man's parental rights if he raped her; that is, he cannot have custody or visitation rights. However, a legal loophole prevents a woman from receiving child support from that man if his parental rights are terminated. A new bill would permit rape victims to pursue the termination of fathers' rights while still maintaining child support eligibility.
