10-Year Old Rape Victim Gives Birth To Baby Girl


Doctor to a 10-year-old rape victim whose plea for an abortion was rejected by India’s Supreme Court has given birth to a baby girl.


The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was allegedly raped severally by her uncle who has since been arrested by the police.

Due to Indian law against medical terminations after 20 weeks unless there is a threat to either the life of the mother or her child, her family's plea for an abortion was denied.

“She gave birth through C-section today (Thursday). Both the girl and her baby are doing fine,” doctor Dasari Harish told AFP by phone from the northern Indian city of Chandigarh.
“The surgery was uneventful. There were no complications whatsoever. The baby weighed 2.2 kilos (4.8 pounds) and is in the neonatal ICU for now.”

The Press Trust of India news agency said the girl was unaware that she had delivered a child and the parents had decided to put the baby up for adoption.

Her parents have told her that she had a stone in her stomach and had undergone surgery to remove it, PTI said.
