Mother Charged With Murder After Allowing Boyfriend to Rape Her 4-Month Old Baby (VIDEO)
The atrocious crime of baby rape is happening around the world. In 2007, Oprah Winfrey exposed the shockingly high numbers of babies raped in Africa. In some cases, men with HIV believed if they raped a virgin, they would be saved from AIDS. So they would seek out the youngest virgins possible.
Here in the States, an Ohio man was recently in the news for the murder of a six-month old baby, after raping her. He pleaded innocent to the murder charge; saying he only intended to rape her, not kill her. I was stunned to find a plethora of similar stories about the rapes/murders of babies and toddlers. I am taken aback with anger and sadness.
It’s important for media to expose these stories, as emotionally painful as they are to write about, and read. We cannot close our eyes, or cover our ears, anymore, because, ‘It’s too much’ - ‘We can’t handle it.’ The discussion must happen, if we are ever going to find reasons these crimes are committed, and overwhelmingly by men. Where is our culture going wrong? Why are men committing such crimes? They were innocent children at one point - when and how did they snap, and cross over to becoming inhumane, monsters?
There is no punishment strong enough for these people. It’s unimaginable to me, how anyone could do such a thing to any human, much less a baby. Tears filled my eyes as I wrote about this. I first heard about the story from my friend and writing colleague, Abby Miller who wrote about it last week.
