Ethiopia A Child is born into an underdeveloped country A young girl becomes pregnant There are two outcomes A Child is Forced into Sexual Activity Virginity is considered sacred The child has to give birth *Girls are married very young because they are pure virgins *Because this is engrained in culture, there are no laws which protect the young girls like there are in the US *Child brides are still expected to consent to sexual activity. There are often no laws providing an age of consent

*Young girls contract sexually transmitted diseases and/or get pregnant *Often girls become pregnant before their bodies are prepared

*Major complications can occur over the nine months a girl-child carries a baby because of her undeveloped body

*The girl-child will not recieve proper prenatal care *In developing countries, hospitals are few, doctors fewer, and supplies fewest. Most women birth at home with a midwife

*A child does not have the proper pelvic structure to birth, however there is not enough medical aid to perform c-sections

*There are no sanitary precautions taken 1) The mother and child both die
2) Mother and child survive and the girl-child loses her childhood. In this situation, the girl-child will most likely become pregnant again quickly. Maternal Mortality *Approximately 290,000 women die yearly from complications in pregnancy
*99% of these deaths occur in developing countries Main Causes for Maternal Mortality Severe Bleeding: With no medical technology, many women die from blood loss after childbirth Infections: occur because sanitary precautions such as washing hands and tools are not performed Pre-enclampsia/enclampsia: High blood pressure during pregnancy. Women are unaware of what this is and so do not care for it Unsafe Abortions: occur because abortion is illegal in many countries. Illegal attempts at abortion are very dangerous and most often result in the death of the mother Now Go Make a Change! It's up to you to make a difference in these women's lives!
