Rape leaves emotional scars on the victims, be it girl, boy, young or old. Stop the violence!

Rape is essentially a form of violence. Just as we have permitted our laws to evolve to a stage where perpetration of family violence by a husband on his wife is no longer permissible, similarly the rape of a spouse ought to be criminalised. Consent must always be freely given. Coercion and violence has no place in a marriage and that is not the kind of family values that we want to promote in our society.

I agree to the petition because Singaporeans women should be protected by the law of the marital rape. spouses should not act against their mates' wishes but reach to a consensus. There should be no forcing in a marriage but an agreement in sexual intercourse.

It is highly atrocious that such a law, perhaps born under much more patriarchal times, still exist in this day and age Let's move along with the times of equality of men and women and get rid of it, shall we?

I spoke about this in Parliament in 2007 (http://bit.ly/eAmFy). It was wrong of Parliament to introduce a limited abolition of the marital rape exception, because marital rape is wrong and unacceptable regardless of whether formal separation proceedings have been commenced. This was one of my reasons for voting against the Penal Code amendments. No means no -- even when it is your wife saying it.
