Protect girl from rape, build a safe society
Effects and aftermath of rape
Rape is a deadly social disorder that is spreading like cancer in our society. As a result of rape, a woman has to lose her honor, social dignity, in some cases her life. The situation has now become such that a three-year-old child is not being spared from the behavior of the rapists.With such a horrendous crime, we are concerned about our humanity.
Even after having a conscience and humanity, how do we become inferior to wild animals? The time has come to be against the infamous brutality of the time. The duty of preventing the rape is not just for the state, it is our responsibility to all of us. Since most males are responsible for rape, so first of all should change the concept of men towards women. The idea that women should be equal to man Family ethics can play the biggest role here. Besides, sexual education should be provided to children by proper education without considering ‘ban’.
In most cases after the rape, the family is forced to keep the matter secret because of socialization. Rather than demanding the punishment of rapists, society fingers fingers to rape women. We have to come out of such a low mentality very fast. It is possible to prevent rape by identifying rapists by bringing them to justice and giving them severe punishment. The present government is firm in no-tolerance against rape and violence against women. If there is a social movement against such a crime, one day Bangladesh will become a safe homeland for women

Fact about the effects on human body
Pregnancy may result from rape. The rate varies between settings and depends particularly on the extent to which non-barrier contraceptives are being used.
In 1982, Fertility and Sterility, the journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, reported that the risk of pregnancy from a rape is the same as the risk of pregnancy from a consensual sexual encounter, 2–4%.
A 1996 longitudinal study in the United States of over 4000 women followed for three years found that the national rape related pregnancy rate was 5.0% per rape among survivors aged 12–45 years, producing over 32,000 pregnancies nationally among women from rape each year.
Study of hospitals in 1991
In 1991, a study in a maternity hospital in Lima found that 90% of new mothers aged 12–16 had become pregnant from being raped, the majority by their father, stepfather or other close relative. An organization for teenage mothers in Costa Rica reported that 95% of its clients under the age of 15 had been victims of incest.
A study of adolescents in Ethiopia found that among those who reported being raped, 17% became pregnant after the rape, a figure which is similar to the 15–18% reported by rape crisis centers in Mexico.
Experience of coerced sex
Experience of coerced sex at an early age reduces a woman’s ability to see her sexuality as something over which she has control. As a result, it is less likely that an adolescent girl who has been forced into sex will use condoms or other forms of contraception, decreasing the likelihood of her not becoming pregnant.
A study of factors associated with teenage pregnancy in Cape Town, South Africa, found that forced sexual initiation was the third most strongly related factor, after frequency of intercourse and use of modern contraceptives. Forced sex can also result in unintended pregnancy among adult women.
In India, a study of married men revealed that men who admitted forcing sex on their wives were 2.6 times more likely to have caused an unintended pregnancy than those who did not admit to such behavior. Any pregnancy resulting from an encounter with a stranger carries a higher risk of pre-eclampsia, the condition in which hypertension arises in pregnancy in association with significant amounts of protein in the urine.Conversely, repeated exposure to the same partner’s semen reduces the risk, through induction of paternal tolerance.
