The story of an eleven year-old girl in Paraguay giving birth by cesarean section is a heart-wrenching one. The little girl, a victim of rape was denied an abortion because Paraguayan strict abortion laws would not allow it.

The girl 42 year-old stepfather was arrested and charged with rape and abuse. The girl’s mother was also charged with child neglect and complicity.

It is disheartening to know that this child had to endure so much trauma. She suffered sexual abuse which goes back as far as 2013 with no one to protect her. Now she has motherhood thrust upon her without getting the chance to enjoy her childhood.

One must question how much Paraguay is doing to protect the rights of children. Reports states that about 684 girls between the ages of 10-14 gave birth in 2014. Most of them were victims of sexual abuse. Help Save our girls. Fight against child abuse.
