Pregnant at 10?

A 10-year-old girl is pregnant after being raped by her stepfather but the government of Paraguay has refused to grant her an abortion (as would a number of USA states). It's an extreme case where the government thinks it knows best. Paraguay's decision is an example of a law that would rather see a child's life placed at risk than perform an abortion. For those Pro-Lifers, I ask a simple question: Whose life are you concerned about? It's certainly not the 10-year-old who is being forced to carry her rapist's baby to term. It doesn't take a doctor to know that pregnancy for a child risks not only her emotional and mental health, but possibly even her life.
