Case of sexually assaulted child in Chile being used to push for abortion


Pro-abortion and feminist groups in Chile are seizing upon the case of a nine year-old girl who became pregnant after being raped in order to demand the legalization of abortion in the country.

The girl is currently seven months pregnant and although she is just weeks away from giving birth—her child could survive a premature caesarean—seven NGO’s are demanding authorities submit her to an abortion.

The NGOs claim the girl must undergo a “therapeutic abortion” in order to “avoid the life-threatening risk she faces.”  They issued a press release calling on government officials to allow the abortion to take place.

Despite warnings from specialists around the world regarding the grave physical and psychological effects of abortion, pro-abortion groups argue that taking the life of the baby will put an end to “the damage caused by the sexual abuse and by the subsequent violence which carrying the child of a rapist entails.”
