A 13-year-old girl who did not access the therapeutic abortion —and was forced to carry the pregnancy to term—died this Wednesday when she was transferred to a hospital in Satipo (Junín), due to a postpartum complication, reported the feminist organization Manuela Ramos.

The minor gave birth at eight months and experienced placental retention that led to her death, according to a report released by Wayka.

Every child pregnancy is considered torture and, according to the Latin American and Caribbean Committee for the Defense of Women's Rights (Cladem), girls forced to become pregnant are up to four times more likely to face complications with an eventual risk of death.

“The State is responsible for [la víctima] could not access the protocol therapeutic abortionas was their right,” the organization noted before recalling that, under Peruvian legislation, any pregnancy in children under 14 years of age is the product of a rape.
