Family’s Attempts #HonorKilling16-yr-old Girl Pregnant By #Rape

Agra, UP, June 15, 2014
She was rap ed at a birthday party. When her family found out she was pregnant they tried to get her an abortion. When that didn’t work, her mother and uncle tied her up and threw her into a river hoping she’ll drown. When she was rescued by some villagers and taken to a police station, the police ignored her, and let her sit for three hours without food or medical aid till she passed out.
“Honor Killings” of women and girls raped is not uncommon in India. Often the victim is forced to commit suicide to “save the family’s honor.” In 1947, during the partition of India and Pakistan, thousands of women who had been raped were killed by their families.
