Shauna Prewitt — an attorney and rape survivor mother who fought her attacker for custody of the daughter she conceived through the attack. While attending Georgetown University Law Center, she wrote an important scholarly piece for the Georgetown Law Journal — "Giving Birth to a 'Rapist’s Child':  A Discussion and Analysis of the Limited Legal Protections Afforded to Women Who Become Mothers Through Rape." She is now a speaker who frequently lectures about the absence of legal protections for women who conceive through rape.

 





Analyn Megison — a graduate of Florida State University College of Law and a rape survivor who fought her rapist for custody of her child conceived from the rape.  In her second year of law school, she was a visiting student at Georgetown University Law Center and interned with a federal judge in Washington, D.C..    She was appointed as the Special Assistant on Women's Policy for the Office of  the Governor of Louisiana, and she currently serves on a omestic and Sexual Violence Task Force in Florida.

 


 



Angela Grogg — A former MP with the Missouri National Guard, whose 14 yr old daughter conceived a son through rape. Finding out early on that Missouri had no laws to protect rape victims and their children, she tirelessly lobbied to change that and on 8/28/12, SB 638 became law, protecting victims and their children from being victimized further by the rapist. Angela and her husband fought to receive custody of their grandson and currently has full custody and will again go back  once all legal proceedings are finished to have the rapist’s rights terminated.
