Don’t try to redefine rape

Well, the GOP is at it again. They want to abolish abortion funding to those women who are not “forcibly” raped. What are they thinking? Is not rape a forcible act? It is hard enough for a woman to prove rape in this country. Now she will have to prove that it was by force. Webster’s Dictionary defines rape as “the crime of forcing another person to submit to sexual intercourse.” Rape is rape! No woman should have to be compelled to bear the child of a rapist if she does not want to. That would be tantamount to raping her again. Rosalie Wohlfromm, Auburn
