In 2019 some Legislative Republicans don’t understand rape.
“When any lawmaker delegitimizes something as serious as rape, there is really no way you can blow that out of proportion,” said Alison Jones, Communication Director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “Sharron Roers-Jones, Steven Vetter, Aaron McWilliams, and Bernie Satrom and other House Republicans also sat on this committee, and none of them said anything. We all know Kim Koppelman has no legal training despite being the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, but you don’t need a law degree to understand rape is rape, no matter your relationship to the perpetrator. They should reconsider his amendment and pass the bill as it was introduced previously. Victims deserve better.”
