A 10-year-old Sengalese girl who was raped and is carrying twins has been denied an abortion. The young girl was raped by a neighbor, reports The Guardian. “She is going to have to go through with the pregnancy,” said Fatou Kine Camara, president of the Senegalese women lawyers’ association, which has been campaigning to the authorities for her to have a legal abortion.
This breaks my heart and makes me angrier than I knew I could get…
If you honestly believe that she should be forced to carry to term, please explain why. Message me, I’m serious. Explain to me how in the world you can justify a 5th grader being forced to carry a pregnancy (let alone a twin pregnancy!) to term and give birth, when she’s already gone through the horrific trauma of rape
Im curious, what does the little girl want?.
Does she want her babies or is she being coerced into thinking she wants an abortion?.
She’s 10. She can’t safely carry twins to term without major damage to her body and psyche.
Important sentences from the full article:
"In a previous case, a nine-year-old was forced to have a baby after being raped."
“Senegal, in west Africa, has one of the toughest abortion laws on the continent. Woman found guilty of having abortion face 10 years in jail, reports The Guardian.”
"Hundreds of Senegalese women die each year from botched terminations."
None of the articles on this subject mention what happened to the rapist. According to the only source I could find on rape laws on Senegal, a rape conviction “can result in 5-10 years in prison.” So most rapists serve less time than the victim who had an abortion.
This could kill her. Twin pregnancy is hard on healthy adults.
Hey @life-with-exceptions, I’m willing to bet that little girl really wants to be a little girl who was never raped and forced into a life-threatening situation. Lots of 10-year-olds ‘want’ babies—does that mean that we get them pregnant and make them become incubators and mothers? How about the 6-year-olds who ‘want’ babies?
TEN. FUCKING. YEARS. OLD.
And you think this is about coercive abortion as opposed to trying to pick up the pieces.
coercion for abortion is a thing that can happen, but this girl is ten and not old enough to make the decision to have babies
when your mom didn’t get groceries and there’s literally just bread to eat
i love this so fucking much
