Court and legislature are out of their minds

I am troubled to find myself on this of this arguement, but what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. If a girl at the age of 12 can get an abortion without telling anyone, why is it that she cannot give consent to have sex? Hmm? Why would she need an abortion had she not already had sex, hmm?

This case has to do with a 17 year old boy who allowed a 15 year old girl to perform a sex act on him. He is now serving 10 years in prison, because he refused to plead guilty. He is a black guy from Georgia, an honor roll student, football star, homecoming king, who was at a New Years' Eve party when this happened. The whole thing was videotaped. It shows more people than just him were there.

There was a 17 year old girl who cried rape, and so everyone was arrested. All of the others took the plea agreement. Not Genarlaw Wilson. He believed then, as he does now, in his innocence. He was correct. He was found not guilty on the charge of rape.

So what is the big deal? The other girl. She was 15. She was consentual, but apparently you cannot consent to oral sex at the age of 15. Only abortions. Huh?

Read more about it here. I cannot understand nor explain this.
