A nine year old is repeatedly abused by her step-father, and becomes pregnant. When it is discovered she is given an abortion. I’ll say that again- NINE YEARS OLD. What is the Vatican’s response? To excommunicate the mother and doctors.
Oh fer fucks sake. Personally I believe there may be a valid debate to happen around the latest date for a termination. BUT this happened at 4 months (?18 weeks), inside the limit for many countries. This is what happens when you wed your world view to a mythology, and one that considers a foetus a human at the point of conception.
There is no happy ending to this story, but the idea that a nine year old could give birth to twins with no ongoing negative effects beggars belief. Her life is screwed up as it is. Why is the Pope giving her a kicking?
