NY ‘rape is rape’ bill passed, changes definition of rape

Unfortunately, it took the brutal rape of a brave, young woman to get New York to start changing its previous illogical rape laws.

Bronx teacher, Lydia Cuomo was the force behind the state’s new “rape is rape” bill that will update the current antiquated rape statute to “include forced oral and anal sex and other forms of aggravated sexual contact,” a CNN report said.

Cuomo, who was raped vaginally, orally and anally by an off duty police officer in 2011, was sickened when a hung jury couldn’t return a guilty rape verdict because the law defined rape only as “forced vaginal penetration.”
