11-Year-Old Mexican 'Rape' Victim Wants to Keep Baby (Women's Groups Pressure to Abort)
Fox News ^ | April 23, 2010 | Jana Winter

Despite pressure from women's groups, the 11-year-old is enthusiastic about her impending motherhood, according to sources.

An 11-year-old girl in Mexico allegedly raped by her stepfather and now more than four months pregnant says she wants to have his baby – despite pressure from women’s groups who want her to have an abortion, pro-life activists in the country say.

They say attorneys for abortion-rights activists have shown up at the girl's home with plane tickets in hand in an attempt to whisk her away to get an abortion, but the child has said adamantly, “This is my baby. I’m having my baby. I will call my girl Alejandra.”

The mother-to-be, from the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, has become the poster child for abortion rights in a country where laws pertaining to the procedure vary dramatically from state to state.

In 2007, Mexico City passed a law allowing abortions to be performed without restrictions in the first three months of pregnancy. The law was challenged, but it was upheld on appeal. Since then, 17 of Mexico’s

SNIP

Last month, when the then-10-year-old girl’s mother told police that her daughter had been raped by the girl's stepfather, she told authorities that she thought her daughter was 14 weeks pregnant, or 98 days, which was beyond the state’s 90-day limit. But women’s rights groups said that because it was unclear exactly how far along the girl was in her pregnancy, an argument could be made that she was still within the 90-day limit.

SNIP

Women’s rights groups maintain that the girl is small even for an 11-year-old and that forcing her to give birth puts her life in danger. They say she is being pressured to have the child and was never informed of all her options.

But others say that’s not true.

She’s a child herself, yet knows what’s right.

That's so sick because the girl emphatically does not want it. Ironically, would it take spiriting her into the USA to keep her and her baby safe?

“(Women’s Groups Pressure to Abort)”

So much for ‘choice’. Wait’ll the ‘greenies’ discover the death panels in Obamacare...

That’s probably where they want to take her for the abortion.

It read like they wanted to get her into a more permissive Mexican state.

This is not incest in the genetic sense.

Key word: “stepfather”.

Yes once in a while bio dad offends, but it’s rare. It’s usually the stepfather or boyfriend.

Good for this girl for “choosing life”. It’s sad she was a victim but she recognizes the gift she’s been given. Like the Tebow episode, the only “choice” so-called “pro-choice” groups are really for is MURDER!

They also want to FORCE her to have an abortion — to kill the baby — which they call “choice.”

Of course, the “stepfather” should be aborted as soon as possible...

It seems the feminists recognize only one “choice”. Choosing to keep the baby is unacceptable to them.

Pregnant at 10? Poor child. I don’t think for a moment that I could have demonstrated the kind of courage and grace under pressure at 10 that this child has exhibited.

I didn’t even imply that it was! I said that the “Stepfather deserves a bullet!”

Yes, I know. But, I doubt she'd be "safer" here. I'm sure Planned Barrenhood would just love to use her as a "success story" on the cover of one of their handouts.

allegedly raped by her stepfather

This would seem fairly simple to verify.

Why is the word “rape” in quotes in the headline? Are they trying to say that if she wants to keep the baby, she must not have been forced to have sex?

It is heartening to see that she realizes that she should not hold culpable the child who had no say in his own conception.

Believe it, or not, 10 is probably the worst possible age for them to try to take that child from her. 10 is a wonderful age for girls (and some boys) when it comes to the nurturing gene kicking in. It's a wonderful age to introduce a younger sibling, if a couple is looking to add a another child. 10 year-olds are at a terrific age for bonding with babies.

While she is going to have to be monitored very closely and this is clearly a dangerous circumstance for her, the counseling she would need to get over taking the baby from her would probably cripple her emotionally. Let's all say a prayer that this child is safe. The father of the baby needs to be locked up, and the mother needs a kick in the ass. I'll never believe a good mother wouldn't know what kind of jackass she brought home.

Aborting that baby will not make her feel better, nor will it un-rape her.

I hope Mr. Stepfather swings soon, however. I am all for his “abortion.”

“women's groups” is a euphemism for GHOUL.

These “women’s groups” focus all their anger on an unborn child, but none upon a lecherous step-father.

I guess they mean it wasn’t “rape rape”, i.e. not forceable.

Good question. In the article it says the girls mother is not convinced that the stepfather really impregnated her. Of course, that proves nothing.

The article also says the girl said she was raped.
I rather doubt that was her word.
Probable said he had sex with her or they messed around or played a game and police or media inserted “rape” since she probably had no concept of statutory rape.

True, but I’ll say that at least she did the right thing in turning him in when she found out about the rape, and having him arrested! She’s probably blaming herself to some extent as well. Also I would point out that she’s backing her little girl in her pregnancy!
