A life for a life?

Or:  when 1+2 may add up to zero.

A nine year old child was pregnant with twins after she was raped by her stepfather,  In Brazil, she met the two conditions, either of which is sufficient to make an abortion legal:  rape and threat to the mother’s  life.  According to doctors interviewed by the BBC, the girl’s uterus is too small to hold even a single child.

These facts have not satisfied the Roman Catholic Church, which is excommunicating all the doctors involved in the abortion. 

he Brazilian Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao also told Reuters “I believe the position of the church is extreme, radical, and inadequate….I am shocked by the radical position of this religion which, wrongly saying it is defending a life, puts another life in danger that is as important as any other.”

The girl’s mother  is also up for excommunication.  No word on the father’s status in the religion, but  the  child is too young to be thrown out of the church.
