In Geneva, Switzerland, four young women from Latin America who were raped as children and denied abortions brought lawsuits Wednesday against their governments before the U.N. Human Rights Committee. The women, who are now between 18 and 23 years old, were 14 or younger when they were raped in Nicaragua, Ecuador and Guatemala. All four dropped out of school after discovering they were pregnant, and their rapists were never brought to justice.
