Scope[edit]

Note: this article is about rape as a deliberate and calculated means to force women to become pregnant, usually with the intention to force them to give birth, as distinct from rape that solely involves sexual hatred and the desire to hurt and control. -- The Anome (talk) 13:34, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I'd also note that denying a woman acess to morning-after contraception or abortion after either rape or any other act of sexual intercourse not intended to lead to pregnancy can also be regarded as a way of enforcing pregnancy; typically associated what might euphemistically be described as "traditional" attitudes, with their general desire for control of human reproductive power, expressed through means such as slut-shaming and generic opposition to women's economic and sexual freedom: see also barefoot and pregnant. -- The Anome (talk) 14:09, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

The section on Rwanda currently doesn't mention anything about forcing women to give birth. It just describes typical war rape. The only citation for that section also doesn't mention forced pregnancy. Kaldari (talk) 18:35, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
