Abortion Investigation
Nicaraguan government subpoenas feminists involved in abortion performed on sexually assaulted girl

.- Government officials in Nicaragua have subpoenaed six members of the Women Against Violence Network, for being involved in the case of a young girl named “Rosita,’ who was raped by her stepfather and forced to undergo an abortion. 

The stepfather’s role in the incident was covered up and feminists from the Network never mentioned him in their condemnation of the crime. As a result, the feminist group has been denounced by the Nicaraguan Association of Human Rights (NAHR)

According to the Nicaraguan daily “La Prensa,” the six women have been summoned to appear before government prosecutors.

The women sought help from the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights but were rebuffed and now claim that the accusations by the NAHR “lack legitimacy and legal basis.”  Press reports indicate that the NAHR accuses the women of “colluding with the girl’s stepfather, Francisco Fletes, and pushing for the abortion until they were able to obtain one for her at a clandestine clinic without adequate medical care.”
 
In addition, the women from the Network discarded the remains of the aborted child, whose blood samples would have provided a DNA link to the person responsible for the rape.
