this story is disgusting.
1 A 9 yr-old girl was raped by her stepfather
2 The girl became pregnant with twins due to the rape
3 The medical opinion is that giving birth to the twins would endanger the girl's life
4 The girl's mother arranges for the girl to abort her pregnancy, which is legal in Brazil for life danger &/or rape
5 A moron Brazilian Catholic bishop excommunicates from the Church the girl's mother, & the physicians who administered the abortion.
WTF?! I guess the pedophile rapist step-father is a good Catholic since he did NOT get excommunicated. The extremely immoral contrast in who did & did not get excommunicated is beyond absurd.
Religions that are both authoritarian & reject science seem dangerous to society.
