I saw a documentary about it on TV and it is just so sad. I'm sure this girl in Chile has a much better chance at having a healthy baby than any of those girls.

    She isn't being forced. She wants to have the baby. Why should she be forced to kill her baby?

    You believe everything you read? So you also believe the sex was consentual because the mother said so. Okay.

    Do you have some information I don't know about? Otherwise all I can go by is what SHE told the TV station when she was interviewed.

    I think we know some about the culture...the laws surrounding abortion, the type of people she was raised by.

    Right- just like the info the mother stated. Why do you believe the child who is 11 and has no option to have an abortion but not the mother if you believe all the statements you are reading?

    The girl's statement wasn't in writing. She stated it in a TV interview. How could they lie about that? It doesn't matter what the mother says, it is not possible that it was consentual at 11 years old.

    I am a bit confused about her "not having a choice" (honestly). I do see that she did not have the choice of an abortion, since that is illegal there, but isn't adoption an option there? I mean, she isn't being forced to raise the baby, is she?

    I do agree it's a stretch to say she has depth and maturity...to me, she has two choices (because of the country she lives in). She can have the child and raise it, or she can have the child and give it up for adoption....she has said she wants to raise the child, despite the fact that the baby was concieved out of these horrible circumstances. Given her statements about it being like having a doll in her arms, I do see the issue with calling her decision one made out of depth and maturity. It seems more to be made out of a lack of understanding of the responsibilities that come with raising a child. I think a lot of 11 year olds (including me at that age) have kind of a fairy tale idea of what it would be like to have your own baby.

    So how does that make it true that she is being forced when she has said otherwise?
