Yes.  I hadn't considered the possibility that the child was just
a few days away from her first period and ha ovulated for the first
time.  <sigh>

Gt> I agree.  No child should have to be subjected to this.

There's a ten-year-old girl who is eight months pregnant in
Texas right now.  Any so-called man who would do that to a
little girl that age deserves to be hung up by his balls,
which should then be cut off with a rusty pocket knife.
