would you like to know if your daughter is raped?
Do you think that parents have a right to know if their daughter has been raped? Particularly after getting a sexually transmitted infection? One school doesn't. Acting president of the secondary principals' association Graham Young said schools had policies on the process, of which parents should be aware, and all policies appeared to have been followed in this instance. Parents of those 14 and over need not be told of a rape.
If that's the case, something is wrong with the policy. ALl parents should be told.
That will avoid things like this girl going to a birthday outing for a family member at a restaurant where one of the alleged attackers worked. The girl wouldn't eat, was shaking and froze when she saw the man. At least she would be able to explain her feelings to her parents if they knew about the rape.
Rape is more serious than abortion. Rape is a crime.
