So Pathetic! 11-yr-old Girl Delivers Baby For Stepdad

An 11-year-old girl who was raped by her 42-year-old step father, Gilberto Benitez Z├írate, gave birth yesterday.
Mirror.co.uk reports that the Paraguayan girl received the attention of various international child rights groups when it became known that she was pregnant in May 2015 at age 10.  Paraguay has one of the strongest laws against abortion in the world. Amnesty International and some other rights organizations had called for the termination of the pregnancy of the little girl because of the psychological trauma she will undergo but the Paraguayan government maintained their stand, saying the little girl will be given the help needed for her to give birth normally.

The girl, who was sexually assaulted by her 42-year-old step father, delivered a baby girl at a Paraguayan hospital yesterday, Thursday, August 13. Gilberto who is married to the young girl’s mother was said to have denied having any sexual affair with the girl at first but gave in later. When he was arrested, he demanded a test saying he could not have got the girl pregnant because ‘he has been with tonnes of women and has never got anybody pregnant‘.

The new mother gave birth through a ceasarian section to a girl that weighed 3.5 kilos (eight pounds).
A statement from Amnesty said while the girl is thankfully stable “the director of the hospital she was taken to has publicly acknowledged that her pregnancy puts her at high risk”. The statement added: “This is confirmed by the World Health Organisation and health professionals around the world who all agree that pregnancy poses specific risks to young girls whose bodies are not fully developed. The risk to their lives is simply greater. This means that all options regarding the pregnancy, including safe abortion services, must be made available.”
