Rape survives in the traditional Christian wedding ceremony, for it is the Best Man who can be trusted to help protect the bride should unruly thugs come to rape her at the ceremony.
In classics, we read about the Rape of the Sabine Women and how rape is an instrument of policy.
And we don't have to go back to Rome, either, though we could pause in medieval history and get more of the same. Just turn to the 1990's, within living memory, and read about the rape squads in Bosnia who raped as part of ethnic cleansing.
The strategy was to humiliate the females of the "enemy side." Deflower the girls and even make them carry the babies of the raping armies.
Go forward one decade and we witness the South Dakota law that would force a woman to carry a child to term who is spawn by a rapist. His seed is furthered - thanks to the new law - and the woman has to cross a state line to get relief.
There are laws on the books that prevent people from profiting from their crimes. For example, a murderer cannot get royalties from a tell-all book about the murder he committed. Yet a rapist gets to see that his baby is brought to term and raised by someone - spending the rest of her life caring and feeding the child that is a result of her humiliation.
