This is hard, but imagine you are raped, get pregnant from that rape, and decide to continue the pregnancy. THEN, the attacker seeks joint custody…or even SOLE custody of that child! It defies logic, yet 31 states the rapists have parental rights to that child. That means visitation, overnights, perhaps, communication with your attacker for 18 years. It happens more than you think.
Shauna Prewitt is an attorney, author, and advocate for raped women, and this is exactly what happened to her after she was raped in college. Spurred by these events and determined to make a difference, Shauna enrolled at Georgetown Law School in 2006. During her time there, Shauna wrote the first scholarly piece examining the legal protections afforded to women who mother through rape. Since its publication, Shauna's piece has received much attention from legal scholars, legislators, and advocacy groups.
She is now a practicing attorney and national expert on the laws protective of pregnant raped women. Shauna frequently testifies in support of stronger rape legislation and routinely contributes to the national commentary on the need for even greater protections. Interviews with and articles written by Shauna have appeared on CNN, NBC, and other national media outlets. And this Saturday she joins us to talk about these kinds of situations and what can be done about them.

PARTY WITH CONSENT- A MOVEMENT TO HELP END CAMPUS SEXUAL ASSAULT
Ever heard of “partying with consent?” If you hang around a college campus, that’s the buzz phrase that means you don’t have sex without permission. Sounds easy, right? But some people (like rapists) just aren’t getting it. What’s the deal?
Jonathan Kalin, founder of “Party with Consent,” started the movement to help end sexual assault on college campuses and health masculinities. He admits that most of the efforts to help curb campus rape has led to confusion and a lot of frustration, and he’s identified three barriers to solving that problem. The idea that sexual assault is simply the result of miscommunication; the fact that there is a real communication problem surrounding sexual consent; and the contradiction of athletics.
Jonathan travels the US to promote and explain the philosophy behind the Party with Consent movement.
There’s no denying there is a serious sexual assault issue on campuses. Even the president launched a major campaign last fall to address the problems. So does Jonathan have the answers?
Tune in Saturday at 11 am Pacific time to hear what he has to say and to ask questions about the problem and what some people are doing about it.

If you ever had, or are having trouble in your intimate relationships, it could be due to the fact that you were either molested or raped at an early age.
Molestation &rape "victims" suffer in so many ways after being violated by their attackers. In many cases, there is more than one attacker. Victims suffer and fall short in attitudes, self-esteem, confidence, character, cognitive thinking, and many other symptoms.
For too many decades, this was a topic that we could not talk about publicly. But thanks to the awakening of society, organizations which specialize in helping victims, and authors who are writing all and telling all, we can now stop the madness of "secrets, and secrecy"!
My special guest, LaTrossica Wilson, is stopping by the show to let you know that child molestation and rape victims can take “solace” in knowing that they did nothing wrong. What happened to you was not your fault!!

“Love Conquers All”
The story you are about to hear is word for word, heart to heart true..
Lenny Singleton and Vandy Hill lost contact with each other after high school only to be reunited 28 years later, this is where it all begins! After high school Lenny went on to earn a Bachelor’s in Business. After college he joined the Navy where his addiction took over his life. In a 13 day period he robbed 8 stores while under the influence of alcohol and crack cocaine. For this he received 2 Life Sentences plus 100 years. He did not kill or even hurt anyone. He did not have a gun during any of the incidents. There is not one victim impact statement made against him. In total he stole approximately $350. This was his first felony offense. In Lenny’s case the Virginia General Assembly recommended 11-18 years. The judge disregarded these guidelines and without any explanation to the court, Lenny or his family, sentenced Lenny to more time than rapists, child molesters, and murderers. To date, Lenny has served over 19 years. His time while incarcerated stands testament to his reformed nature. He works every day in a position of authority at Virginia Correctional Enterprises. He lives in the Honor’s Dormitory. He has never received an infraction for anything during his entire incarceration.
I began writing everyone I could think of to bring this situation to light to the American public. I also began writing Lenny. Through the act of writing and catching Lenny up over the past 28 years, I began to see what bad shape I was in. I was horribly overweight. “Vandy, You have a tumor, to be continued, listen in to find out the rest of the story..

After 38 years as a psychotherapist, Dr. Carol Francis notes that couples, parent-child relationships, business settings, romances, and daily conversations can be loaded with manipulations which are both helpul and harmful. In this program, we make it more clear when we are manipulating or influencing each other in a positive way (as with Andrew Carnegie's "How to Win and Influence Friends") and when emotional manipulators cause serious damage.
Emotional manipulators are individuals who try to defeat, over-take or control others by using emotionally entangling techniques. Starkely, these types of manipulations keep people in abusive relationships with violent spouses, sickening parent-child abuses, or bullying at work or in romantic relationships which turn very controlling and/or violent.
Of course, we all influence each other and in fact parents, teachers, bosses, marketing companies and advertisements can positively learn the art of manipulating their circle to create amazingly positive outcomes or connections. But emotional manipulators are typically geared to oppression, bullying, dominating, undermining, exerting some power, or bleeding a person's finances or gaining sex on demand, even rape.
This podcast, one of many on this topic, helps listeners recognize the importance of 1) self-respect, 2) self-knowledge, 3) differentiaing kindness from manipulation, 4) being clear on personal vulnerabilities that give manipulators access to your emotional bank account and more.

January is National Stalking Awareness Month. This is a serious problem. Many have lost their lives at the hands of a stalker. Here to help us make sense of staking is Ms. Bevelyn Mitchell.
Bevelyn Mitchell is a native of the Low country, a small crossroad town outside of Walterboro,
SC. She is a graduate or SCSU, SC and Springfield College Springfield Mass.
She has lived at the beach for the past 16 years. She has worked in the field of Social Work for the past 16 years. Much of her work has been done in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties. She believes that God has given her the compassion to relate to those who are hurting.
Her past work experience includes working for Mercy Hospice, CARETEAM HIV/AIDS population, and the Elderly. She is currently employed for Horry and Georgetown Rape Crisis Centers and the Sexual Assault Services Coordinator.
Working with Rape Crisis allows her to work with rape victims and survivors of sexual assault. This also allows her to educate the community, local hospitals, law enforcement, educators and anyone who listen. Rape is forced, unwanted sexual intercourse. Rape, sometimes also called sexual assault, can happen to both men and women of any age.
Rape is about power, not sex. A rapist uses actual force or violence — or the threat of it — to take control over another human being. Some rapists use drugs to take away a person's ability to fight back. Rape is a crime, whether the person committing it is a stranger, a date, an acquaintance, or a family member. No matter how it happened, rape is frightening and traumatizing. People who have been raped need care, comfort, and a way to heal.
She and her husband Greg are blessed to have two adult children Mitch 32 and Ashleigh 25.
How many times have we heard leftist liberals say that pro-life people [particularly Conservative ones] are hypocrites because they defend the right of the unborn while supporting the death penalty for murderers? They say that it's hypocritical to affirm the sanctity of life while favoring the death penalty for violent criminals. Well, I'm one of those guys who happens to be both. And I'll give a coherant and eloquent defense of that position. First of all, it's crucial to understand that the unborn are helpless babies who did no wrong. But when someone murders or commits a violent crime, then the guilty person loses his/her the right to live. As a society, we punish people who do evil, not innocent people who are helpless. And in actuality, being both pro-life and pro-death penalty is consistant with that position. It's still consistant with the basic moral position of punishing the bad guys and stopping them from doing any more evil while protecting innocent life. So yes, I'll show why I'm pro-innocent life. I'm pro- save any helpless life. Meaning I DON'T support aborting babies, especially if they're disabled. I consider the fact that more than 90% of babies being aborted for having down syndrome ot be an ableist Holocaust. And it's our duty as a society to help and care for the weak and disabled, not to kill people on the morally repugnant grounds of their existence being a burden. In fact, I'll show that in this issue, pro-choice leftist liberals who oppose the death penalty, are the REAL hypocrites. They want to protect the lives of violent criminals while they're ok with the systematic genocide of millions of babies in the womb in the name of the woman's right to "choose." In addition, they want to protect the lives of rapists while championing the killing of babies conceived in rape in the name of caring for the rape victim, which is hypocritical to the core.
Abortion used to be a big issue where I was "ideologically" pro-life; but "pragmatic". But what I'm learning now is that, to say the least, many times, my "pragmatism" is gutless weakness. A perfect example has been my politics on Israel prior for months prior to the kidnapping of the Yeshiva students, which struck a raw nerve in me. But leaving that aside, abortion has been another example. I used to admire Israel's [too liberal] abortion laws, even though millions of Jewish babies get murdered while murderous Arab terrorists get free education in prisons, resulting in kidnappings of Israelis in order to demand for the "freedom" of these mass murderers. I remember years ago when I used to be against abortion even in cases of rape and incest. I was seen as reactionary and backward for it. I was ridiculed for holding that position. Basically my position was that though rape wa sa horrible crime, the baby in the womb should not be the one punished for it. Then to be more "reasonable", I started getting mixed feelings. And most recently, at most, it was mixed feelings for the first 40 days. But now I am against allowing abortion even in cases of rape and incest, thanks to the compelling arguments by Rebecca Kiessling, a pro-life activist who herself was concieved from rape. And also the fact is that there is no death penalty for the rapists themselves [though, in my view, there should be]. But put simply, abortion when it's not the only choice to save the mother's life, is murder, period. And it's also ableist genocide, as a disproportionate amount of those targetted are targetted for being disabled. I will discuss abortion on demand as a phenomenon of the anti-Torah madness, for the principle that all human life [both Jewish and non-Jewish alike] was created b'tzelem Elokim [in G-d's image] gets discarded.

Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's The Ernest Experience Radio Show.
We continue the national discussion on rapist Bill Cosby. More and more victims, including former supermodel Janice Dickinson, come forward with the same story. Some stories date as far back as 1969. Yet some folks are still defending Cosby. Is it just that they are waiting for the facts, giving the benefit of the doubt, or are they simply blinded by celebrity? We're talkin' about it!
All this plus NPR News, the Accuweather national forecast, and we celebrate the ladies of the 90s in the ERN Listening Lounge. Join us on the phone at 1.347.989.1942.
This program will cover the great career of Mayor Marion Barry who descended to the land of the ancestors this week and the Bill Cosby fiasco. Ever since darren wilson murdered our young Brother Mike Brown on August 9, 2014, whites have used their media to assassinate the character of Black men in this country. From Adrian Peterson to Ray Rice to Mike Brown to Bill Cosby, the Black male image is under complete seige.
Not since the time of "Birth of a Nation", when Black men were painted as sadistic rapists of white females, has the white hatred of Black men been this intense. While the white media is encouraging white anglosaxons to view Black men as savages who should be slaughtered wholesale and white militias are preparing for Racial conflict, Black people are still locked into loving the Obama administration - the single most destructive political administration to Afrikan people in the history of this country.
