A young girl in Puerto Montt is 14-weeks-pregnant after being raped by her mother’s boyfriend. She is not able to have an abortion as the procedure is illegal in Chile in all cases. The man has confessed to sexually abusing the child.
The mother spoke in defense of her boyfriend, who was arraigned in court in the southern city of Osorno.
“She wasn’t violated and he would not have used force,” she said, adding that the relationship between them was consensual.
Ah, that’s nice. The child is 11 years old – and her mother says she had “consensual” sex with her mother’s boyfriend? That is some loving mother.
This case has brought new, fierce criticism of Chile’s current abortion laws, which as of 1989, outlaw all cases without exception. Politicians have spoken out on the issue via social media.
You mean girls of 11 shouldn’t be forced to bear children? That can’t be right.
