    9 Y/O Rape Victim Has Abortion - Church Complains

    Brazil girl, alleged rape victim, aborts twins

    The procedure on the 9-year-old girl draws complaints from Catholic church

    updated 1 hour, 35 minutes ago

    RIO DE JANEIRO - A 9-year-old girl who was carrying twins, allegedly after being raped by her stepfather, underwent an abortion Wednesday despite complaints from Brazil's Roman Catholic church.
    Police said the stepfather has been jailed since last week.
    Abortion is illegal in Brazil, but judges can make exceptions if the mother's life is in danger or the fetus has no chance of survival.



    Fatima Maia, director of the public university hospital where the abortion was performed, said the 15-week-old pregnancy posed a serious risk to the 80-pound girl."She is very small. Her uterus doesn't have the ability to hold one, let alone two children," Maia told the Jornal do Brasil newspaper.
    But Marcio Miranda, a lawyer for the Archdiocese of Olinda and Recife in northeastern Brazil, said the girl should have carried the twins to term and had a cesarean section.
    "It's the law of God: Do not kill. We consider this murder," Miranda said in comments reported by O Globo.
    Calls to Miranda were not immediately returned.
    Brazil is home to more Catholics than any other nation.

    Easy fix. I would have said "who here is against this child having an abortion?" The first hand that came up would get to raise the baby.

    I think the consensus was she would not survive the pregnancy, her uterus would rupture.
