A California lawmaker wants to expand the definition of rape to include “stealthing,” the act of removing a condom during intercourse without consent.

California state Rep. Cristina Garcia introduced a new bill, AB 1033, on Monday that aims to classify stealthing as a form of sexual assault, describing it as violating consent, exposing victims to unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, CBS SF Bay Area reports.

“Stealthing is rape,” Garcia said in a statement. “Penetration without consent is rape.”

Garcia said California law does not currently acknowledge the act of stealthing, but that it should. Stealthing refers not only to the removal of a condom during sex, but also to tampering with a condom without consent.

Wisconsin state Rep. Melissa Sargent has introduced a bill to acknowledge stealthing as rape in her state, as well. The Associated Press reports it would require sexual partners’ consent to removing contraceptive devices.
