The article that I decided to dispute is about a victim who has to pay child support to the aggressor. According to the article, a 15 year-old boy who was raped by a 34 year-old women is now being subpoenaed to pay child support. Thirty-four year-old, Linda Kazinsky, repeatedly raped the now 19 year-old Jeremy Steen on a weekly basis for 3 years. After Steen alerted police, Linda Kazinsky was arrested and charged with statutory rape and false imprisonment. After Kazinsky was released for serving her time in the Nebraska’s state prison system she was able to regain custody of her child that had been a ward of the state for the first thirteen months of it’s life until Kazinky’s sister was able to gain ...view middle of the document...
The women could have done it to get pregnant in the first place. Maybe that was her intention. The poor boy didn’t even get a say in weather he approved of her having the baby since it wasn’t consensual in the first place. For women who becoming pregnant through rape have a choice on weather or not they get to choose to have that child or not. Weather people agree or disagree women still have the right to choose to have the child or not and that is the biggest debate with abortion in the federal system. Why can’t the same rights be done for boys who are raped by older women? Although the boy is not carrying the child physically, the boys DNA is still very much part of the child. The women may have been charged with a crime and she may have done her time for that crime, but in the long run did she really get what she wanted and had planned. In the end, does the women ultimately have the upper hand? Because in long run the boy will have to pay child support for a child he may not approve of and not only does he have to only pay once, but he has to pay until that child is 18-21 years of age, health care, and day care if needed and also, the 20,000 plus in back child support.
In conclusion, the teenage boy will not receive his driver’s license until the back child support is paid and is up to date. So not only did this lady possibly destroy his mental state of mind, but she also made his life a lot harder than it needed to be. I think that in certain circumstances some people should not have to pay child support and the other person who was involved in conceiving the child should also have a say in the birth of the child especially in cases such as this.
