The British justice minister said the so-called "because of rough sex" will now be banned in a new amendment to the domestic abuse bill. It is now ready to be confirmed by law in England and Wales, as agreed by MPs. MP Alex Chalk said the above reason could be used to justify or excuse women's deaths in court, and that it will be explicitly prohibited by the new domestic abuse bill. “We Can't Consent To This,” an activist group that has supported the illegalization of the provision, said it was a big leap forward, and the group explained the 'rough sex' defense has contributed to the lesser sentence that criminals would receive.
