“There are no indications that the girl’s health is at risk … we are not, from any point of view, in favor of terminating a pregnancy.” That’s Paraguay’s health minister Antonio Barrios explaining why a ten year-old girl who was raped by her stepfather will not be allowed to get an abortion. The stepfather is currently on the run. Meanwhile, the girl’s mother has been imprisoned for breaching her duty of care. And according to the government making these laws and decisions, “two births a day occur among girls aged 10 to 14 in Paraguay, and many are the result of sexual abuse by relatives.”
