Check out today’s NY Times editorial on the Kansas craziness I wrote about yesterday. Glad to know I’m not the only one freaked out by logic that says statutory rape is all good so long as you get married:
The fact that parents are willing to go along with these unions does not make them right. Chances are that in most of these cases, as apparently happened with Mr. Koso’s family, when the parents found out that a baby was on the way, they were eager for the child to be born to married parents. But neither parental nor state approval makes it right to tie a girl as young as 12 to another person in what is supposed to be a lifetime commitment.
