Why Don Opposes Capital Rape

Your scenario doesn't apply to Adams' argument as he clearly references "First degree rape" in the article. Look up the definition and you'll see it is entirely different from your scenario.

Good point. There need to be several different degrees of rape; and only that resulting in pregnancy or "grievous harm" (specified; no hand-waving) should be a capital crime.

Don is angry with me. He cannot understand why I support punishing rapists with death while simultaneously defending the rights of the unborn. He accuses me of applying double standards, promoting hypocrisy, and of being "inconsistent." But I am perfectly consistent in my beliefs. And, truth be known, so is Don.

The reason so many people are unfairly labeled as "inconsistent" is because the term "double standard" is applied in such a haphazard fashion. People are actually guilty of applying a double standard when they treat two identical things differently. On the other hand, they are not applying a double standard...
