Brazilian Child-rape Case Part 2
The case of a 9 year old girl who had an abortion after becoming pregnant because of rape by her stepfather, which I recently wrote about here, has taken another turn. Not content with merely condemning the abortion, the Catholic Church in Brazil is now excommunicating the doctors involved and the girl's mother. According to the BBC, the situation has "has attracted criticism from women's rights groups in Brazil." Only from women's groups? If so, that's pretty sad.
