for these states rape isn't rape rape.
State | Age
Kentucky | 16 - [1]
Mississippi | 16 - [2]

[1]Age 16 if the man is 21 or older.
[2]If the female is over 12, the status applies only to virgins.
Ah Red State Morality at work The de-virgined seem to be less interesting to lawmakers in Mississippi.

With this mindset one could think that when it comes to abortion maybe it's the fact that a fetus can't have sex that assures it's innocence and keeps them spiritually perfect. Maybe it's the Pre-Born have no Original Sin ??
