Benedict College student dies from childbirth

COLUMBIA — This is a prime example of what “pro-life” laws do: a 19-year-old Benedict college student has died during childbirth.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said the student, who was approximately 32 weeks pregnant, had a natural childbirth. Her body was found Tuesday night in her dormitory room. No one else shared the room.

The child was not alive at birth and given South Carolina’s history of prosecuting women for delivering dead babies, the student did not call 911.

The delivery happened during the weekend.

I’ve been saying this forever, and I’ll say it again now: South Carolina’s anti-choice laws directly contributed to the death of this very young woman.

If this state’s abortion laws were more like Oregon’s abortion laws, then this Benedict College student would have been alive, earning the credits towards her degree.

Teacher arrested for raping boy after boy’s father catches her barely clothed fleeing room

WINONA, MN — A 43-year-old teacher has been arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old boy.

The victim’s father said that the suspect fled his son’s room barely clothed, wearing only a bikini.

The victim said he and the suspect were having sex, then later told Winona County deputies that the pair had multiple sexual encounters over the past two months.

Pam Ann Fahy, 43, of Hokah, Minn., was arrested by the Winona County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday and charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

She resigned from her job at the La Crescent-Hokah School District on Tuesday, where she had worked with special-needs preschool and elementary school children for about six years.

Ms. Fahy also had her foster children removed from her residence on the day she resigned from her teaching gig.

Paine College has yet another rape

AUGUSTA, GA — Not this crap again.

Another rape has happened at Paine College.

This time, Alexander Riddle is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her dormitory.

Both the suspect and victim are students at the college.

Paine College has a sex-segregation policy for its campus residence.

Unsurprisingly, the students and the school are blaming the victim for her own assault, saying that she violated their segregationist policy.

Duarie Pearsall told WRDW, “The truth of the matter is, had policy been followed, it wouldn’t have happened. These are students here who know the rules, who know what the policy is.”

Well, had that policy been followed, as Ms. Pearsall claims, the rape would have happened somewhere else on campus, like in a wooded area secluded from the other parts of the campus, in the campus restrooms or in the campus locker rooms. Claiming that a violation of policy caused this rape is victim-blaming, Ms. Pearsall. That is all.
