    This article lists what I think is one of the most heinous aspects of anti-abortionists: in Brazil a nine-year old girl is raped by her step-father, and she has an abortion (twins) after 15 weeks. Nine years old. A Catholic archbishop promptly excommunicates everyone involved in the abortion: doctors, nurses, mother, daughter. Everyone EXCEPT the rapist. Someone in the Vatican concurs! Later, a group of archbishops rule to overturn the excommunications.

    Typical of false belief systems which promote their doctrine, no matter how faulty, at all costs.

    We'd better start colonizing Mars or find intelligent life out there soon. Otherwise the RCC might run out of developing countries to try and stay relevant in.

    Excommunicating everyone BUT the rapist? Condom distribution is exacerbating the problem of AIDS in Africa? Can the RCC really be wondering why their numbers are dwindling?
