An 11 year old Romanian girl was raped by her uncle and now wants an abortion. You’d think it’d be a no-brainer that she should have one, right? Well, you’d be wrong, religious groups oppose it:
Twenty pro-life Christian Orthodox groups threatened to press charges if the girl was allowed to have a termination in Romania on exceptional grounds.
Look, I’ve no problem with people having religious beliefs. But I do strongly object to those religious people who want to force their beliefs onto others. If you think abortion is worng, then don’t have one — but don’t try to make others go along with your beliefs.
Fortunately the Romanian government have more sense:
[the girl] can have an abortion in Romania on exceptional grounds, the country’s government ruled today.
