8-Year Old Girl Raped to Death on Her “Wedding Night”
Why do the news organizations call the rape of an 8-year old girl that cause her death, from massive bleeding caused by a uterine rupture, a death on her “wedding night”? Why don’t these organizations just say that the girl was raped until she died? There is no wedding in child rape. Huffington post calls the death of this girl a death on her “weddng night,” as does Yahoo news. Check out the titles of the articles below–it doesn’t get any better. So why does no one say that a child was raped to death, instead of calling her a “bride” or talking about her “wedding”? In what kind of society do we live in which this little girl isn’t rightfully recognized as a child who was raped instead of married. “Marrying” a child does not make any sexual encounter less than rape in an 8-year old girl.
