I am writing to urge you as my representative to stand with survivors of rape and domestic abuse and vote in support of AB 812 & SB 530 to repeal CA Penal Code 262. It is imperative that California treat spousal rape as equal to non-spousal rape under the law. Rapists who are convicted of raping their spouses face less severe sentencing and may not have to register as a sex offender. This archaic legislation maintains the view of a wife as her husband’s sexual property. Rape is universally acknowledged as a crime of violence that is both physically and psychologically harmful to the victim. Rape is rape, regardless of the relationship between a rapist and their victim. I am counting on you as my representative to vote in favor of AB 812 & SB 530
