Waiting for the Vicodin to kick in...

Colombian Catholic Church Excommunicates All Involved in 11-year-old Rape Victim’s Abortion


I...have no words.

Well, maybe a few.

Archishop Luis Augusto Castro, president of the Bishops’ Conference of Colombia, spoke out against the Court’s decision to accept abortion in difficult cases involving rape or incest, saying “The child is innocent…the criminal should be punished and put in jail for a long time, but the child should not have to pay for the sins of another..."

I completely agree with you. That poor young girl has suffered enough. It can't possibly be healthy for her to carry a fetus to term at her age. And just imagine the trauma she's already gone through...

"...He is an innocent baby.”

What! I thought we were discussing that poor innocent girl unwittingly raped and knocked up? Are you trying to tell me that some teensy little pre-human (which, by the way, may also be a girl) has more of a right than a living child of 11 years?

Fuck you with a cross. Splintered with nails driven through it.

Sheesh! In the first quote, I thought he was talking about the victim, but of the fetus! WTF?!

When asked, most far right Christians will say the only time an abortion should be considered is if the mother's life is in danger. Continuing along the lines of the bishop's thinking, that shouldn't be the case. We should always let the mother die. After all, she's a grown woman with sins. The baby will be innocent. Of course, it could also be Satan but born an innocent baby. These people should really try some logic before they start trying to change the world to their own illogical view. Call me when you get to Dragoncon so I can say hey and give you a hug okay? PL&J
