    Romanian church groups oppose abortion for 11-year-old pregnant rape victim

    BUCHAREST, Romania — Twenty church groups on Thursday urged a government committee not to allow an 11-year-old girl who was raped by her uncle go to Britain for an abortion.

    The anti-abortion Christian Orthodox groups also threatened to press charges if the girl were allowed to have a termination in Romania on exceptional grounds.

    I think they should at least castrate the sick SOB who did this to her or is that illegal too?

    If you belong to the church it is the churches duty to try to have you follow Gods law. It is never the gov't duty to make you follow Church law.

    Why would any church want an 11 year old RAPE victim to give birth? :banghead: That is flippin crazy.
    The little girl has experienced the trauma and brutally of being raped. So these jackazzes believe she should experience birth??? At 11 years of age?!?!?!

    Poor baby, both of them. I cant imagine giving birth at 11. I hope she has good medical care and doesnt get a fistula from it.

    Because life is life. Why do you assume the act of childbirth is more traumatic than abortion - the killing of the life within?
    Yeah, life is hard. But being the victim of the crime of rape is not eareased by an abortaion.
    If she were not religious this would not be an issue, your morals don't aply!!. Being a believer in Chirst means bringing that life to fuition, not killing it. That is the Churches view. God loves life in all its stages!

    Did you read my entire post?:doh:

    An 11 year old doesn't need to have a baby!
    An 11 year old girl's body isn't physically ready to have a baby.
    For gawds sake most 11 year olds haven't had a period yet.
    Surgery----She can be put to sleep for the surgery.

    You really need to think about what you posted.

    I'm a Catholic & I'm normally against abortion, but this is one of those scenarios where I am torn. If she DOES give birth, they need to put her to sleep and deliver the baby by c-section...by NO means should she have to go through labor and a vaginal delivery, she is a mere baby herself.

    This is one of those cases where I almost think this pregnancy should be stopped. What if she dies from trying to give birth to this baby? What then? She was RAPED....she wasn't having consentual sex.

    If she does give birth odds are it will be a csection. She probably isnt wide enough to give birth and it would prevent a fistula. But its Romania and who knows what finances her family has.

    God loves life in all it's stages...then He must love life in it's "dying stages."

    I assume it will be tragic to the mother - in this case a child killing her unborn.

    Yes , God loves life in all it's stages...but, to choose in this stage to kill over giving live birth,- is one that the mother has to deal with, not the unborn.
