Default Abortion : should we admit exceptions ?

Hi,

It came to my mind with that little girl, 9, raped by her stepfather in Brazil, who was, with her mum, excommunicated for having aborted.

Honestly, i don't support abortion, but there are cases where i'm not clear of what should be done.

In the case of that little girl, the first thing that comes to my mind is " no abortion ", but i can't prevent myself for thinking " Who am i to tell what should be done in such terrible cases ? She might suffer all her life for that, get mad, the kid might be disformed, she might die. Who am i to tell a 9 years old girl she should keep a baby " ... Honestly, the risk is too big, and a 9 years old pregnant is a nonsense.

What do you think ?

I don't like to weigh in on abortion threads because of the passions involved. I don't like abortion, but I don't believe that people who vote democrat have blood on their hands. I would like to see abortion returned to the state level, because no administration will ever out and out prohibit all of them.

That being said, I believe life begins at conception, and abortion kills that life. Life at it's most innocent. I do not support the taking of an innocent life under any circumstance.

I totally agree.

As far as the hard cases are concerned, I find this article to be quite informative:

Thanks, that was an interesting article, which could be extended to other things, in terms of the " intention " concept i read inside.

That brasilian affair came to my mind while reading many of the abortion subjects here (France allows abortion under conditions since Veil law in 1975, and i never heard any of the existing parties claiming to withdraw it (the Death penalty law is sometimes put in question the extreme right party).
It seems that the subject comes quite often on the scene in USA ?

To come back to that brasilian affair, i " think " God never wanted children to have babies, more from their own family (i guess that's why consanguinity exists, and is an important risk).

Thou shalt not kill.

It does not say, "Thou shalt not kill, unless you are young."

It does not say, "Thou shalt not kill, unless you are raped."

It does not say, "Thou shalt not kill, unless it would be an inconvenience."

Thou shalt not kill. (period)

Agreed...murder is murder. Now if the decision came down to saving the mother or saving the child, saving one is not murdering the other one.

I know, it just troubles me :s ... i'm stuck on the consequences of " letting things go " after such a trauma, for the little girl, and the baby ...

Dr John R. Rice said it best in his book ( I forget the title of the book) but he said ( or least pertty close to) "Why would you punish a child for the sin of his father"?

??? Is a baby "punishment"????

Abortion is not a "neutral" precedure for the mother (that is not causing harm to the mother) It can cause many problems including death.

The 9 year old has had a terrible ordeal. Having an abortion will not change that. Having an abortion could kill her or cause her to never be able to conceive again.

peace to you
