From the annals of the really fucked up

Nick Kristoff is in Sierre Leone:
In a rape treatment center here, I met a 3-year-old patient named Jessica, who was cuddling a teddy bear. 
Jessica had seemed sick and was losing weight, but she wouldn’t say what was wrong. Her mother took her to a clinic, and a doctor ferreted out the truth. She had been raped and was infected with gonorrhea.
