Sviket i Rotherham er av en sånn karakter at det er nær sagt umulig å fatte at dette kan foregå i et sivilisert samfunn. Men endringene av Europas samfunn er ikke lenger oppoverbakke, det er en nedadgående bakke for humanisme og frihetsverdier. Kombinasjonen en ikke gjennomtenkt innvandring særlig fra den islamdominerte verden der verdier i kollisjon med de samme frihetsverdiene råder, avindustrialiseringen (som skaper arbeidsløshet og sosiale underklasser), og stamme- klanmentalitet (man omgir seg med sine egne, de andre har mindre menneskelig verdi), tror jeg er noen sentrale faktorer bak grooming-fenomenet.
Det kommer stadig nye opplysninger knyttet til Rotherham-tragedien. Sist ut er om jenter som ble tvunget av de voksne overgriperne til å abortere. Hvis ikke ville de ble drept, var trusselen.
Et av ofrene forteller at da hun ble gravid for andre gang – med måneders mellomrom – fikk hun beholde barnet med voldtektsforbryteres godkjennelse.
A Rotherham child abuse victim has told how her attacker warned she would be killed if she refused to have an abortion – at the age of 14.
The woman, now in her 30s, revealed how she then fell pregnant to the same abuser for the second time just six months later and on that occasion was allowed to keep the child.
Her story comes as it was revealed that as many as 100 teenage girls may have had babies after falling pregnant to their abusers.
According to the Sunday Mirror, the victim, known only as Jane, was targeted as a schoolgirl in Rotherham while she was living with her parents.
She described how her attacker, who was in his 20s, was driving around in his car looking for potential victims when he saw her in the street.
After ‘chatting her up’ and buying her food and clothes, Jane admitted she felt ‘flattered’ by the attention.
In the weeks that followed he would sneak in through her bedroom window and have sex with her while her parents slept in the next room.
She told the newspaper that she found out she was pregnant while she was at school – but on telling her attacker, he ordered her to get rid of the baby.
‘He told me they would do a DNA test and he would be jailed. He said his friends would find me and kill me.’
Despite her desperate parents informing social services, she claims no action was taken.
‘I had the abortion and I was put in care to keep us apart. He would drive up and down outside my home. It was like he was stalking me.’
Just six months later, and living with foster parents, the abuser tracked her down and she fell pregnant again at the age of 15.
