belenIf abortion were legal in the country of Chile, an 11-yr-old girl known as “BelÚn” would likely still beáenduring rape by her mother’s 31-yr-old boyfriend.

BelÚn was recently discoveredáto be pregnant (now almost 15 weeks) when visiting her grandmother, who alerted authorities. The truth eventually tumbled out that the bf had been raping BelÚn since she was seven (some reports nine), threatening to kill her and her little brother if she told.

BelÚn’sámother “shocked Chileans… when she defended him saying his relationship was consensual,” quoting the Associated Press.
