Raped and no right to choose

19 May

A 10-year-old girl in Paraguay was reportedly sexually abused by her stepfather for years. She appealed to the authorities for help but they did nothing to protect her. Now pregnant and being forced to have the baby, she needs our help.

Every day in Paraguay, two girls between the ages of 10 and 14, give birth to children conceived as a result of rape. It’s an epidemic. The law could give access to abortion in these cases but government officials refuse to allow it. Now the tragic case of this 10-year-old girl has dropped a global media bombshell that is forcing them to reconsider.
