Ten-Year-Old Girl Seven Months Pregnant After Being Raped By Uncle, Court Denies Permission For Abortion

The 3 Week Diet

Plea to stop child abuse

An Indian court told a 10-year-old girl, who is six months pregnant after she was allegedly raped by her uncle, that she is “too young” to get an abortion.

According to the Chandigarh District Court, an abortion was “not an option at this stage,” as she was too far into her pregnancy. It ruled that the rape survivor should carry the pregnancy to term based on a medical advice given by the Government Medical College and Hospital in Chandigarh, where the girl was examined.

Sources at the hospital told the Hindustan Times that they were planning to take up the matter of putting the unborn child up for adoption with the Missionary of Charity.

The girl’s parents discovered their child was pregnant after she complained to them about stomach pains. They found out that she had been raped six times, allegedly by her maternal uncle. Her father is a government employee; mother works as domestic help.
