Is the pregnant 16-year old prosecuted for clear violation of rape laws? No? Maybe because most state laws exclude prosecution of minors engaging in sex with each other, but prosecute adults having sex with minors. Adults like, oh, Jeffrey Epstein.I stand by the constitutional (not moral) argument I offered in my controversial oped: if a 16 year old has the constitutional right to have an abortion without state or parental interference, how could she not have the constitutional right to engage in consensual sex? 1/ https://t.co/48Thb8Uaym— Alan Dershowitz (@AlanDersh) July 29, 2019
First rule of legal analysis I learned: "Change the facts, change the outcome." Second rule: know when to sit one out.
Consider sitting this one out https://t.co/FQdWAVjARv— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 29, 2019
