Doesn't it just put a lovely warm feeling in your chest, knowing that the Catho's get upset over abortions, but don't care to mention the rapes that lead to them?
Hrm. Maybe that warm feeling is actually my urge to go and wring their necks?
I particularly want to throttle Marcio Miranda, the lawyer for the Archdiocese of Olinda. She had the gall to say:
"It's the law of God: do not kill. We consider this murder."
The victim was nine years old! She's nothing more than a baby herself! And this fucking church wanted her to carry the twins to term and have a c-section! Even the doctor involved said:
"She is very small. Her uterus doesn't have the ability to hold one, let alone two, children."
Carrying those twins to term could have killed her. The ordeal of carrying the spawn of her rapist would likely have ruined her for life! Having children at nine would definitely hae ruined her for life!
Yet the church wanted her to do it anyway!
Strike this up as another reason religion should be wiped off the face of the damn planet. Notice also, how the church made no mention of the rape, to either sympathise with the girl or condemn the act.
