TIME SENSITIVE: International Policy & Human Rights …Help Girls of Paraguay Gain a Choice.
Here’s another extremely sensitive and controversial story we’ll feature on Golden Age of Gaia, which is exactly the type of awareness we choose to highlight and support. This world is for all of us to live. It is us who can change it. Whether it’s people in North America, people in Zimbabwe, or people in Cambodia –everywhere around our gorgeous globe– as human rights advocates, we must stand by each other to be the change we want to see in our world.
I very much appreciate that some of these topics are hard to swallow –some people may choose not to let said vibrations into their consciousness. To those of us who decide such: “I respect and honor you.” However, truth be told (which is always one of our main tenets at GAoG: Increased awareness and truth, discerned by our intuition), these lower vibrating activities are still occurring upon our planet.
For whatever reasons, these crimes continue (probably the last of our collective karmic balancing), and as our awareness of responsibility and our awareness that We Are All One expands, such harsh activities happening across our planet cannot be ignored, hoping they will simply disappear.
Choosing always peaceful protesting and advocacy through increased awareness –never through violence, negative ego, nor intimidation– this is the kind of humanitarian support we can and must offer to one another no matter what country or culture. “A 10-year-old girl in Paraguay was reportedly sexually abused by her stepfather for years. She appealed to the authorities for help but they did nothing to protect her. Now pregnant and being forced to have the baby, she needs our help.”
“Every day in Paraguay, two girls, between the ages of 10 and 14, give birth to children conceived as a result of rape. It’s an epidemic. The law could give access to abortion in these cases but government officials refuse to allow it. Now the tragic case of this 10-year-old girl has dropped a global media bombshell that is forcing them to reconsider.”
“On Tuesday, Congress [of Paraguay] will review this law and open up discussion to citizens. This is the chance to change everything for this 10-year-old and ensure that no young girl has to fight this battle again. [Joining this campaign], we’ll deliver our voices directly onto the floor of Congress, demanding that the law be applied to this girl and children like her, who most need to have a choice.”
It’s not my desire to stir up tempers within the anti-abortion populations –not my intention. Yet, situations like these are very real in our world, in every country, and to be forced to do anything –especially to have a baby at the child-age of ten, resulting from being raped by one’s own father, is just as criminal, in my opinion. Being forced to have the baby is not the answer.
Seriously, a 10-year-old girl is nowhere near ready to take on the huge responsibility of raising a child. This is literally a child raising a child, conceived through less than honorable and ideal circumstances. Please stand up and help little girls in Paraguay gain a choice — dear readers, use your voice!
“To the Congress of Paraguay and the National Commission of Penal System Reform: ‘Article 109 of the Paraguayan Penal Code allows abortions when the mother’s life is in danger. Girls under 15 are five times more likely to die from birth complications than older women. As Health Minister you have the power to improve the lives of thousands of Paraguayan girls by making sure that Article 109 is enforced to allow terminations for minors and to give all the assistance needed to the 10-year-old girl whose case is currently under consideration.'”
Please click on the link below, and do it now, if you are so moved to sign their petition, because Tuesday May 19th, 2015, is the day as mentioned above, when Paraguayan Congress reviews this law, having the future of thousands of such Paraguayan little girls’ lives in the palm of their hands. Speak up and get active in creating a world that honors every person’s freedom of choice.
Across this beautiful world, We Are All One.
