Why did Drudge Link This?
The Drudge Report links to the following news report about a 10 year-old girl being raped and impregnated by her step-father. Maybe I've been in psychiatry too long, but this story does not seem surprising or unusual to me. I've heard many stories from young and middle-aged adults of being sexually abused when they were children. I guess 10 is a little young to go through puberty and be biologically capable of being pregnant, but it' not unheard of. This story does not seem unusual enought to be newsworthy to me. Sexual abuse and rape happens to children all the time.
