Teen girl in Dominican Republic dies from cancer following delayed treatment

Ophelia reports that the pregnant girl* in the Dominican Republic whose treatment for leukemia was delayed while criminally immoral people debated whether she should be allowed proper medical care has died.

I can only hope this tragic story will prove a rallying call for women and reproductive rights in Latin America.

*I wish people would stop referring, as that article from Jezebel does, to a pregnant girl or woman as "the mother." It's incorrect and counterproductive.
