I’m so glad the Catholic Church has got its priorities straight here.
A nine year old girl from Brazil was raped by her father and became pregnant as a result. The mother opted for an abortion at 15 weeks as her doctors believed her life to be in danger. Then the church steps in and excommunicates the mother and the doctors.
While I understand the Church’s position on abortion, I just can’t agree with them here. Instead of excommunicating them, perhaps the church should have praised the mother for saving the life of her nine year old daughter.
Of course, this poses another question: What exactly are they putting in the water that a nine-year-old can even get pregnant? I remember when everyone was going wild about 12 year olds developing faster than they used to. A nine year old shouldn’t ever have to worry about the distinct possibility of becoming pregnant.
