Brazil Church Excommunicates Mom, Doctors After ***** 9-Year-Old Has Abortion

Thursday, March 05, 2009



RIO DE JANEIRO — A Roman Catholic archbishop says the abortion of twins carried by a 9-year-old girl who allegedly was ***** by her stepfather means excommunication for the girl's mother and her doctors.

Despite the nature of the case, the church had to hold its line against abortion, Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho said in an interview aired Thursday by Globo television.

"The law of God is higher than any human laws," he said. "When a human law — that is, a law enacted by human legislators — is against the law of God, that law has no value. The adults who approved, who carried out this abortion have incurred excommunication."

Health Minister Jose Gomes Temporao rebuked the archbishop, saying, "I'm shocked by two facts: by what happened to the girl and by the position of the archbishop, who in saying he defends life puts another at risk."

Abortion is generally illegal in Brazil, which is home to more Catholics than any other nation. But the procedure is allowed when the mother's life is in danger, when the fetus has no chance of survival or in **** cases where the woman has not passed her 20th week of pregnancy.

Doctors said the girl was 15 weeks pregnant when the abortion was performed Wednesday in the northeastern city of Recife, where Sobrinho is archbishop. Health officials said the life of the girl — who weighs 80 pounds — was in danger.


The pregnancy was discovered last week when the girl fell ill and her mother took her to a clinic. The child then told officials she had been abused by her stepfather, who is in police custody.

A similar case in southern Brazil surfaced Thursday. Authorities in Rio Grande do Sul state told the O Globo newspaper that an 11-year-old girl allegedly ***** by her stepfather is seven months pregnant.

The 51-year-old stepfather has been in jail since January while the girl is in a hospital for high risk pregnancies and apparently will not have an abortion.

I respect people who mantains his faith and self believes at all situations. But they need to use their brains from time to time, that's why their God gave them the ability of "reasoning".

You unite morons like the Brazilians with churches and it's expected you'll get something like this.

Personally, I am an opposer to abortion in most cases, but this one is certainly an exception! :( A baby shouldn't be forced to have a baby! It's not like she had consensual sex; she was *****. :rolleyes:

I respect people's right to religion and all, but I have zero respect for the Catholic Church and this just reaffirms why.

I don't know so much about the other Churches, but I do know that the Catholic Church is very large, influential and fucked up.

fair enough :)
but a bit of an insight from the orthodox front
it's also large ( cause of the Russians), not so influential in global terms, but nothing less fucked up then the Catholic one.
