MANAGUA, Nicaragua - A government board is studying whether a 9-year-old girl could carry a baby to term safely while considering her family's request to have an abortion. The girl's parents said she was raped in Costa Rica and have asked for the government's approval to give her an abortion. Abortion is allowed in Nicaragua in cases of sexual abuse, when the mother's life is in danger, and when the fetus has severe deformities. All must be confirmed by three separate specialists and a government medical board must give its approval. 

In interviews with local television stations, the girl said she did not want to have a baby because she didn't want to share her toys with other children...

I'm pro-choice anyway, but I think that any person who would force a raped 9 year old to have a child to "save the life of the fetus" is sick.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 7/3/05 - 4:30:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes! That's horrible. A nine year old cannot carry a child normally. She does not have the maturity and her body is not ready yet to carry a baby.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 7/10/05 - 10:21:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
She won't live after the baby's born, her body's too small, of course she should get one.

I second that.

She should definitely have an abortion.

On a related note, a five year old girl had a kid

Agreed.

If that's what she and her family wanted, yes she should be granted the right to an abortion.

I don't think her body would be able to handle a baby, seeing as she is growing also and needs all of the nutrients she can get.

You don't have to have a period to have a baby.
I don't know how to answer this. Maybe if i had more medical knowledge of the case. But i feel bad for the girl that got raped. geez...nine...that's awful for any age...but NINE!?
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/18/06 - 9:36:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
She should be *forced* to have an abortion, because nine year old CHILDREN should NOT be HAVING CHILDREN.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/19/06 - 8:03:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
Personally, I am opposed to abortion, but I wouldn't ever tell a nine year old girl that she had to go through child birth...so yeah, I'd say that in this case, she should be allowed to have one.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/19/06 - 10:04:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
i am against abortion so i think that the mum of the 9 year old should bring up the child as her own! i feel sorry for the child aswell because if the guardians of the girl were responsible enough they wouldnt have let the girl out of their sight and not let anybody go near her!

I BLAME THE PARENTS!

no abortion. let her have the baby, don't murder it because it's inconvenient to the family.

She's 9 years old ffs. Plus this story is 3 years old. I wonder what ever became of it.

Thank God. I'm so happy I live in a democratic free country.

I really can't understand what's going on in the minds of people who'd force a 9-year-old rape victim to have a child.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/19/06 - 1:43:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds like she's an obvious candidate for an exception.

If she can't have one, nobody can.

Hell, that may be the point the nay-sayers want to make.

Seriously though, who in their right mind would force a 9 year old rape victim to have a child?

I totally agree.

I also don't understand how someone can equate being pregnant and having a baby to being a mere "inconvenience" for the family, like this person;

I'd like to see this person get pregnant and give birth and then say "Oh, it was nothing, just an inconvenience."

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 5/30/06 - 3:47:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, she should have an abortion, it's cruel to make her give birth, also, she wouldn't be able to look after it.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 6/24/06 - 1:48:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
she should although the situation doesn't meet the requirements set by the government
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 6/24/06 - 1:55:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Holy sh*t, I didn't even know that 9 year olds could get preg.

NO! "Aborting" a nine year-old is murder! You have to decide before the twentieth week of your pregnancy; you can't wait another ten years or so! How ridiculous!

Your jokes are so f*cking lame!

And yes; she was raped.
