(Newser) – Amazon will no longer offer a video rape game, following consumer complaints, reports the Daily Telegraph. The Japanese game Rapelay instructs virtual players to stalk and rape women, then force them to abort any resulting pregnancies. "We determined that we did not want to be selling this particular item," said an Amazon spokeswoman. The Japanese company that created the game, Illusion, makes a number of sexually violent games.
