World Briefing - The Americas - Brazil - 9-Year-Old Has Abortion Despite Church’s Objections - NYTimes.com
ABORTION A 9-year-old girl who was carrying twins, and whose stepfather is suspected of raping her, underwent an abortion on Wednesday despite complaints from Brazil’s Roman Catholic Church. The stepfather has been jailed since last week, the police said. Abortion is illegal in Brazil, the country with the most Roman Catholics, but judges can make exceptions if the mother’s life is in danger or the fetus has no chance of survival.

What can you say? How can you take a horrid situation and make it worse? Include the church....
