Stop Iowa Rapists from Having Potential Rights to Children Conceived in Sexual Assault

It is a scary fact that in the State of Iowa, if a woman becomes pregnant from sexual assault, the rapist can gain parental rights to said children. No woman should have to co-parent with an individual that brutalized them. 

Help protect these women and children so women can speak out against their attackers without fear that the perpertrators of these crimes can seek revenge by attempting to gain access to a child conceived in rape. 

Several other states allow rapists the same rights and it needs stopped so women can speak out and not be afraid.
