In the midst of the debate over the law of Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy (IVE), the senator of Corrientes Ana Claudia Almiron, of the Frente de Todos, shared a harsh history of sexual abuse in his province, where They gave a baby shower to a raped 11-year-old girl.
Outraged with the lack of policies on the part of the government, Almirón remarked in her speech in favor of the law that abortion is a public health issue and that “many legislators lost their fear to defend with emphasis “the project.
“You know that I represent the province of Corrientes, a province that was declared Pro-life in December 2011. Declaration that did not even go through the provincial legislature. The instrument chosen, which was a decree of the Executive, is not accidental, thus decisions are made in my province. Unilateral decisions chosen by men, and that women, young people and dissidents have no participation, “he denounced.
And he continued: “In the name of morality and conservatism those decisions are made. Corrientes does not have its own Legal Interruption of Pregnancy (ILE) protocol, nor did it adhere to the national one. In September of this year, we learned about the case of a 10-year-old girl who was raped by her stepfather. A girl from Monte Caseros, raped, and who became a mother at the age of 11 “.
In addition, he stated that the province does not have a youth voting law and added: “In other words, 16-year-old adolescents are not qualified to elect their leaders, but they can be mothers at 11. That is the reality of Corrientes.” .
“That girl was stripped of her childhood and forced to carry a pregnancy. The doctor who treated her in her locality spoke to her about the consequences of having an abortion, but did not speak to her about the consequences of carrying a pregnancy in a body that barely it was developing, “he said and said that the case became relevant because they celebrated a baby shower. “A girl who was raped was given a baby shower”, remarked.
“Sadly, I have to say that these cases in my province are so many that they have even been naturalized. Without the implementation of Comprehensive Sexual Education (ESI), without the provision of contraceptives, and without the ILE protocol, Corrientes gurisas are forced to give birth at 10, 11 and 12 years. And so I make my own a concept that said Pino Solanas: “That is quite the idea of the incubator woman,” he concluded.
