Brazil News

An AP article in the local newspaper said a 9-year-old girl was "allegedly" raped by her stepfather. The child was 15 weeks pregnant with twins and Brazil courts allowed for an abortion. At 80 pounds with an undeveloped uterus a hospital spokesperson said the child would not be able to carry the twin fetus'. The Roman Catholic church in Brazil complained about allowing this poor child to have the pregnancy terminated.

What kind of sadistic people would desire to inflict that kind of cruel punishment upon a girl? Surely they have never carried a fetus in their body for 9 months and endured the delivery of a baby. Was not losing her virginity through force traumatic enough without expecting her to experience childbirth?
