Conservative Dream Come True: 11-Year-Old Rape Victim Forced To Give Birth

An 11-year-old girl who was raped and impregnated has been forced to give birth after being denied an abortion several months ago. Conservatives must be giddy right about now.

It’s a scenario that Republicans would love to see play out here in America where abortion is a constitutional right for women. But sadly, women and girls do not have any such right in Paraguay.

Earlier this year, a 10-year-old girl was raped by her mother’s 42-year-old boyfriend, Gilberto Martinez Zarate. After going to the doctor for stomach pains, it was discovered she was pregnant and authorities arrested Zarate in May and charged the girl’s mother with neglect. Unfortunately, the girl lives in a country where the government is controlled by religious anti-abortion zealots so she was denied an abortion.

International outrage has ensued ever since, as human rights groups have blasted the Paraguayan government for putting the little girl’s life at risk.

And the now 11-year-old girl certainly was lucky to survive.

She gave birth this month via C-section and she’ll never have a chance at a normal childhood.

According to Agence France-Presse:

Amnesty International called on Paraguay’s government to repeal its strict anti-abortion law, saying the girl was lucky to be alive.

Erika Guevara, the rights group’s director for the Americas, said the fact that the child survived “does not excuse the human rights violations she suffered at the hands of the Paraguayan authorities.”

Officials in the South American country “decided to gamble with her health, life and integrity despite overwhelming evidence that this pregnancy was extremely risky and despite the fact that she was a rape victim and a child,” she said.

UNICEF notes that at least two girls between 10 and 14 give birth every day in Paraguay and three girls are currently preparing to give birth in the same hospital where the 11-year-old gave birth this week.

Of course, the same could happen here in the United States if conservatives have their way. For years, Republicans have sought to ban abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. That means little girls who are impregnated by their rapists would be forced to give birth against their will. They would have no choice as conservatives would control the bodies of these girls. This, of course, would make pedophiles very happy because they could rape and impregnate any little girl they want with the knowledge that conservatives would help them continue to torture their victims and give them the ability to seek parental rights later on so they can continue a vicious cycle.

And the evidence that Republicans would gleefully force raped little girls to give birth against their will comes not only from their own legislative agendas, but from their mouths as well.

Over the years, especially in recent years, Republicans have spoken of rape as if it is an acceptable method of conception sanctioned by God. Just click here to find 40 such examples of conservatives talking about their opposition to abortion exceptions for rape victims. And yes, if Republicans had their way, even child victims of rape would be forced to carry pregnancies to term, even if it means they could die from the attempt. And to add insult to injury, if any of those girls should lose a pregnancy that was forced upon them, conservatives would also love nothing more than to imprison them for having a miscarriage.

So next time you go into a voting booth, be sure to remember that your vote could allow conservatives to have the ability to destroy the lives of little girls across the country. Basically, your vote could turn America into Paraguay.

  1. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MANKIND –
    GOD IS GOOD -RELIGION IS EVIL!
    THINK WITH YOUR BRAINS LEAD WITH YOUR HEART AND FORGET WHAT YOU WERE TAUGHT!

  2. Why not just give the baby up for adoption? you show a article with A beautiful little baby on the cover and expect people to be like,” you should have killed that baby?”it was a tragedy that the 10-year-old 11-year-old or any other child or woman is ever raped. Just of the child being raped is a tragedy does that really mean that we should kill the baby inside the belly. The baby is a tragedy all of its own and just because it’s a tragedy and here on terrible circumstances doesn’t make it any less human. It’s all awful and I’m not here to judge or tell anyone what to do but showing an adorable little baby is probably not the best way to persuade people to kill a fetus? Now I know if God brings us to it he will bring us through it we should all pray for all these babies

    • How about helping the mother raise her child, Jeanette?
      Can you chip $20 in for Pampers,formula,or clothes to be sent to this poor girl?
      This child will remind her every day of what happened to her..
      Pray only for the child?
      Prayer won’t help here !
      She’s 11 years old & doesn’t know to raise child!
      Physical abuse will begin to happen to the child …as soon as the child starts crying..
      Think again..

    • 1. Babies don’t grow in bellies. They grow in uteruses.

      2. It’s less to do with the adoption portion and more to do with the fact that it is extremely physically dangerous for kids (an 11 year old is a KID) to give birth.

  3. Some of these comments are incredulous. "It won't happen in America." "Don't blame the baby." Well, don't blame the 11-year-old for being raped and pregnant. Her body is being desecrated and devastated because she is too young to carry and give birth. It does happen here. In the 1960s, my friend who was a nurse and also a Bapist preacher's wife was telling me a story about an 11-year-old girl who had just had a baby girl and was in the hospital on her floor. She walked in one day and the little girl was crying. She asked her what was wrong, and the child said that she wanted to keep her baby, but her mother wouldn't let her. The mother was putting the baby up for adoption. The girl had been impregnated by her stepfather. Back then the laws protecting children against sexual abuse were either very loose or nonexistent. My friend said she wanted to convince the mother to let her daughter keep the baby. After I reminded her what the results of that could be, another little girl impregnated by this pedophile, she rethought her position. The next day, she walked in and the little girl was happily playing with her dolls. She really couldn't differentiate the difference between the dolls and her live baby. I don't know what happened to the baby, but I assume it was put up for adoption. At least I hope so.

  4. The bible does not condemn abortion and yes it discusses it. Jesus does not even touch on abortion in the gospels. Facrs. No one should have to relive rape through 9 months of pregnancy. Protect a women’s right to choose her own reproductive healthcare. Let’s not return to back alley abortions..
