Why it's Hard to Be Against Illegal Immigration Part 1:
Mexican Rape Victims 'Denied Help'

I can't say it any better than the BBC, "Rape victims in Mexico are routinely denied access to legal abortion, says Human Rights Watch in a new study. It says official figures reveal more than 120,000 women are raped in Mexico each year but the real figure could be much higher. The group says many of these women are intimidated by officials into having backroom abortions or going through with the pregnancies unwillingly."

How can we spread human rights to the Middle East if we can help our neighbors?
