A friend sent this article to me with the comment:
"It's pretty much the same story, revisited in 2012 Poland, as the 2009 episode of the the nine-year-old Brazilian rape victim whom the Archbishop of Olinda and Recife, Jose Cardoso Sobrinho, tried to prevent from having an abortion, regardless of the fact that she would otherwise have died.
Both cases strip RC doctrine of any semblance of Christianity: for the sake of preserving their power, discredited and seemingly unaccountable men will crucify women's lives, not to mention rights, hence our own and those of our children."
Bridget Mary's Response:
I will never understand how the Vatican and/or hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church can continue to oppose contraceptives that reduce abortions and save lives.
Both these cases above involve minors who have been raped. In one or both cases, the girls would not survive a live birth and the church stepped in and mandated that they put their lives at risk.
If it was your daughter, what would you do? What do you think Jesus would do?
