She is cast aside while forced to inhabit a body turned enemy, tethered to a carcass that no longer belongs to her. The agony of this physical and psychological violence endured by girls and women impregnated against their will is drowned out by the shouts of moral accusers, disregarded by cowards, and contorted to fit inside the sugarcoated fantasies of the naive and ignorant where such girls and women are forever imprisoned.
