Chile’s president has caused
outrage after praising an 11-year-old girl for her“depth and maturity” after she
said in a recent TV interview that she wants to give birth to the baby who was
conceived when she was raped by her mother’s partner.
This girl is 14 weeks pregnant.
Well before the 24 week limit set here in the UK. Barely into puberty and facing
the risk of giving birth. This is not a matter of the right or wrong of Abortion this is
a matter of the life of the girl. What is the chance that giving birth at her young age
leads to complications and death? Is it worth risking her life?
Once again we have simple Humanity crushed by Religion. Normally it’s Islam but
here it is the good old Roman Catholic Church. The strongly conservative Roman
Catholic country has banned all forms of abortion regardless of the reason.
Doctors say you are likely to die if you give birth, sorry no abortion for you in Chile.
A young girl, a child really, who has been abused since she was nine and is now
instead of enjoying the freedoms of children everywhere she is going to become a
It doesn’t matter that her body is at huge risk giving birth due to being
It doesn’t matter that she is emotionally and physically far too young to
be having a child.
All that matters is that people whose bones have been dust for centuries wrote a
book about how they envisaged the rules of religion/society as dictated by another
group of people who had been dead even longer.
This is as much child abuse as the common cases of Priests and children in their care.
That the child has been so indoctrinated by “Her” religion that she accepts the
situation is just as obscene.
Beliefs and religions should never be used to impose such cruelty.
