A woman is being raped by a man. Halfway through the act, she gives him consent to keep going until he finishes. Is this rape?

Yes, as the consent could just be under duress or survival to not upset the attacker.

I suppose it's rape if it's any point non-consensual, but giving consent partway through seems like it could imply that the victim has changed his or her mind.

Once an act is a rape it can't be changed. A woman under this traumatic stress may say anything out of fear.

wow is this manipulative wording. Yes it is rape, the consent given is most likely forced compliance so there is less of a struggle and it can be over faster, or even a strategy to save her life, he could be threatening her if she doesn't consent or doesn't shut up or maybe she knows he has a weapon.
