Her rapist was offered the chance to see her child, victim claims

Sammy Woodhouse waived her anonymity in a bid to help other victims.

(CNN)A child sex abuse victim is alleging her jailed rapist was offered the chance to see her son, who was born as a result of the attack.

Sammy Woodhouse, who has waived her legal right to anonymity in a bid to help other victims, released a video on Tuesday calling for the British government to change the law after a local council in the English city of Rotherham offered her rapist the option to apply "parental rights" over her son, she alleges. Woodhouse was attacked when she was a teen.
"This story is actually about myself, about my son, and about the man that raped me," she said in the video posted on Twitter.
    "And the fact that Rotherham Council have offered him to apply for parental rights over my child even though (it was) proven in a court of law -- that (he) was sentenced to 35 years -- that he was a danger to myself and to other children."
