A legal and human rights expert wants to know how a Winnipeg girl could have been impregnated by her stepfather twice and had two abortions before she was 13, yet not have been deemed a victim of sexual assault. (The abortion industry is not as transparent nor compassionate as some fantasize it to be.)
The offences took place in 2011 and 2012, but only came to light after the stepfather, now 35 years old, was arrested for assaults against two other people. (A young girl assaulted and ignored by a system in a society that sexualizes and exploits children.)
He has since pleaded guilty to multiple counts of sexual assault as well as other charges.
"In my view, if a child presents at a hospital pregnant, there's questions. There's reason for red flags to be raised," said Karen Busby, a University of Manitoba law professor and a director of the university's Centre for Human Rights Research. "Because technically speaking, an offence has occurred." (Duh, ya think?!)
