Alternative shorter some random National Review sixth-stringer: If Michelle Knight had chosen not to carry her rapist’s child to term, she should have been sentenced to death.
I also enjoyed the attacks on Coker v. Georgia, the 1977 case in which the Supreme Court (speaking through known bleeding heat Trotskyite Byron White) ruled that the Eighth Amendment prohibited the death penalty for sexual assault. Yes, who doesn’t long for the days in which some African Americans who were accused of raping white women and may or may not have been guilty were randomly selected for execution? (Between 1930 and Coker, 90 percent of the men executed for rape were African-American. What a remarkable coinky-dink. I can’t imagine why the Supreme Court found this problematic.)
