Pregnant 10-Year-Old Girl is Denied Abortion in Paraguay after Being Raped by Her Stepfather

A 10-year-old girl who is 22 weeks pregnant after she was allegedly raped by her stepfather is being denied permission to have an abortion. Why? Because the South American nation looks down upon abortions -- even if someone has been raped. Going one step further into absurdity, it's still looked down upon even if it just happens to be a child who was sexually abused and raped by a family member. Is your head spinning like mine is after learning about this case?

There are some cases where abortion should be allowed, I'm sorry. I am pro-life, but in this case, where a child's life is at stake since pregnancy this young could kill you, I am in support of this little girl having an abortion. Look, her own stepfather is the rapist. This is barbaric and an atrocious act on his part. 

Do you agree, or if it was your child who had been raped and was now pregnant, would you be willing to allow her to have an abortion in this case?

    She's 10! She's supposed to be a kid, to play, to have fun, to go to school, to learn, and to make up her mind about family and kids when she grows up! This is so so sad.

    I believe abortion should be an alternative if a woman was raped no matter what her age. Yes, there is adoption but allowing her to feel, see and grow her rapists child inside her is subduing her to even further trauma and abuse. It's removing her consent all over again. If this were my child, I can't even begin to know what I would do but I know I'd be outraged that my child would have to endure pregnancy that she only is dealing with because someone raped her.
