Gov. Removes "Forcible" Rape Language

about "forcible rape" from a new state policy on Wednesday after The Huffington Post
reported that the language had been added in.

 CYFD had used the term "forcible rape" because the FBI still uses it, and it can be found in some federal regulations for the establishment of paternity. 

Martinez, a former prosecutor, also used the language in an executive proclamation earlier this year.
“Rape is rape," said Adriann Barboa, field director with Strong Families in N.M. "Let’s not move backward toward victim blaming."
