1. It is uncertain where consent ends and force begins. Because that is largely a religious question that cannot be determined by science, it has no place...
I looked up the Greek - rickmcq's right - Joseph wasn't going to kill Mary, he was going to (essentially) divorce her in private. If it was public knowledge, Mary would have most-likely been stoned to death. He COULD have had her killed, and this would have been considered "just" under the law, but he chose to spare her from the shame and/or punishment. So I was wrong - Joseph did not plan to kill Mary. He was going to "put her away priviliy", which (roughly translated) amounts to a divorce (although there are on-going debates about that interpretation too). But while this was my error (and you have my apologies), it doesn't change my central argument one bit.
I know it sounds outrageous, but the arguments my liberal readers make for abortion have convinced me that they are trying to legalize rape. Aside from the obvious fact that rape is a moral issue (and one can’t legislate morality), pro-abortion reasoning provides 10 additional reasons for making rape legal. I have enumerated all of them below. I have even taken the time to expand on some of the more disturbing arguments:
