10yr Old Child Pregnant After Step-Father Raped Her

Some men can be mean,i think this one deserved to be killed,How can someone rape a 10yr old. Well it hapoened in Paraguay. Read the story below as reported by Sarah Malm...

A ten-year-old girl in Paraguay who fell pregnant after allegedly being raped by her stepfather has been refused an abortion.The girl was taken to hospital by her mother after complaining about stomach cramps, and doctors found that she was 21 weeks pregnant.
Termination is illegal in Paraguay, even in cases of incest and rape, and the girl has instead been moved to a 'young mothers' home', and her mother arrested over the alleged rape.

Amnesty International is now calling on Paraguay's government to allow the girl to get an abortion for the sake of her health.

'The physical and psychological impact of forcing this young girl to continue with an unwanted pregnancy is tantamount to torture,' Guadalupe Marengo, Americas Deputy Director at Amnesty International, said.

'The Paraguayan authorities cannot sit idly by while this young rape-survivor is forced to endure more agony and torment.

'Forcing this child to carry a baby to term, against her will, could have devastating health consequences.'

The ten-year-old allegedly fell pregnant after her stepfather raped her. He has since fled and is being hunted by police.
