Jun. 6, 2019
A 12-year-old girl in the US territory of Guam who was allegedly raped and impregnated will have no choice but to give birth to the child — due to lack of abortion providers on the island.
Bureau of Women's Affairs Director Jayne Flores shared the girl's story with The Pacific Daily News. "It breaks my heart that the 12-year-old girl who got raped... has to have a baby," Flores said, adding that the man was recently charged in court. "It breaks my heart that that girl will have to go through with her pregnancy because there's no one on island that will help her."
