Governor Snyder signed the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act into law on May 3, 2016. The bill was added to a broader package of bills on domestic violence that were also signed. The new law empowers women who conceive after being raped and courageously choose to parent their child to limit the rapist's ability to wage a custody battle. The bill was inspired by Shauna's story, one of four stories told in Right to Life of Michigan's compassion project. Shauna was forced to choose between prosecuting her attacker and protecting her daughter.
