I pit you, my fellow Australians, or at least those of you who left comments about the 12 year old girl granted the court’s permission to have an abortion.
When an intellectually disabled 12 year old girl turns up pregnant, my first assumption is that she was sexually abused and raped, not that she’s promiscuous. Yet there’s over 200 comments that largely condemn the girl and her parents for her situation, assuming that she was a willing sexual partner.
A selection of comments from just the first couple of pages:
Extra punctuation = extra outrage!!!
Mmm, me too. I hope this pregnant 12 year old with the intellect of a 6 year old wasn’t taken advantage of. :rolleyes:
Oh sure. Those intellectually disabled girls are usually so forward and can easily pass for early twenties.
Right. The 12 year old being pregnant MUST be because her parents allow her to run amok and not even possibly be anything at all to do with a paedophile taking advantage of her.
Yes, of course it’s her (so-called) parents that are to blame for this, and not the father of the child.
This summary of comments was almost as depressing to read as YouTube.
