A Pregnant 14-year-old = Raped

I can’t get my head around the exact legal terminology, and the laws in this instance would seem to differ from the ones I’m more knowledgeable about in the UK, but either this girl was raped or was willing (I can’t find definitive reference in the piece so I’m not going to speculate). I can’t see in the piece either if she had an abortion or some other way of ending the pregnancy, so I’m just going to say this, whether she was raped or she consented to having sex with I’m going to presume, a boy of a similar age, she end the pregnancy. The fact that we have this situation in the first place is a sad indictment of society. No one shouldn’t be judged for having underage sex, but kids shouldn’t be pressured into sexual relations either. There should have been someone she could talk to, but better still, this situation is one that could have been avoided if certain people put the people of the world first, and not their election campaigns. Kids need suitable education about the world around them at the relevant times and age groups, and not to just be told they can’t do something, as that instantly will make it exciting and something they want to do.

You think I just don't understand, but I don't believe you.

A 14-year-old girl who is pregnant was raped.

    I followed the links from there and found she actually killed the baby after giving birth. And, yes, the father is a juvenile. So the sex was quite possibly not a crime by UK laws as far as I understand them (depending on the exact age of the juvenile). In Ireland it is a crime by present law, but not a rape (unless it was an actual rape, of course, as in she did not consent, not just her consent is invalid); an upcoming bill introduces a 2 year age proximity clause.

      If both parties were under are then it’s considered a crime. That’s really sad about the baby.

        There seems to be a mistake somewhere in “were under are”.

        We’re under age.
