High court judge rules that mother of V – who gave birth after a suspected rape – may not be able to prevent another assault. The baby is now in foster care. V, who was born abroad, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy as well as learning difficulties. She has a mental age of about five. She can only speak of a few words of her native language and knows even fewer English words. It's appalling that she was not given an abortion. I bet her mother is religious.
