Child Marriages

Giving abuse validity and robbing girls of their independence is a violation of human rights. Young girls who are coerced into marriage are the victims of government rape, putting them in jeopardy for domestic violence, forced childbearing, and other health risks while also being denied admission to school and work opportunities. Giving abuse validity and robbing girls of their independence is a violation of human rights.

Children's life in America are virtually destroyed by child marriage, especially their health, educational opportunities and employment. It also undermines their physical security, which is worse: A significant proportion of unwanted or unplanned pregnancies, as well as physical, sexual, financial, or emotional abuse, are reported by Americans engaged in child marriages. Child marriage weakens legal rape protections. Marriage renders legal in most states and under federal law sexual activity with a child which would otherwise be illegal.  In some circumstances, a child rapist can use the legal marriage as a way to avoid ramifications of rape.
