HB 713 authored by Representative Brad Raffensperger, allows a woman to prevent her rapist from legitimating her child if the child was conceived during the assault. Often times, rapists will file for parental rights of the child conceived as a result of rape and use the case to force a woman to drop her rape charges against him. This bill would free women from the grip of their assaulter and help keep children safe from predators.
Georgia Right to Life supports HB 713.
