Catholic Church Wants 9 Year Old To Risk Death Giving Birth After She Was Raped

More from the wonderful world of religion.......

The regional archbishop, Jose Cardoso Sobrinho, pronounced excommunication for the mother for authorising the operation and doctors who carried it out for fear that the slim girl would not survive carrying the foetuses to term.
"God's law is above any human law. So when a human law ... is contrary to God's law, this human law has no value," Cardoso had said.
He also said the accused stepfather would not be expelled from the church. Although the man allegedly committed "a heinous crime ... the abortion - the elimination of an innocent life - was more serious".
Battista Re agreed, saying: "Excommunication for those who carried out the abortion is just" as a pregnancy termination always meant ending an innocent life.

Despite what some Catholics believe, the Catholic church is not God. The Pope is not the voice of God on this planet. They are simple humans trying to pick their way through a moral minefield. Yes, they lose site of the goal sometimes (many times? Always?). I'm sure a poll of professing Christians, Catholics too, would give a more satisfying response.
