MANAGUA, Nicaragua - A government board is studying whether a 9-year-old girl could carry a baby to term safely while considering her family's request to have an abortion. The girl's parents said she was raped in Costa Rica and have asked for the government's approval to give her an abortion. Abortion is allowed in Nicaragua in cases of sexual abuse, when the mother's life is in danger, and when the fetus has severe deformities. All must be confirmed by three separate specialists and a government medical board must give its approval. 

In interviews with local television stations, the girl said she did not want to have a baby because she didn't want to share her toys with other children...

Should this 9-year-old girl be granted an abortion? See story.

I'm pro-life and OF COURSE she should be granted an abortion!!!!!!!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 3/24/03 - 12:23:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
i dont see how you couldnt not grant her an abortion
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:05:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
That is so horribly sad. Yes she should be granted an abortion. Definetly.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:09:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am definatly pro life...she was raped why should she have to keep a baby she is nine years old having that baby could kill her while having it or, later on down the road. Think of how she will feel towards the baby...she would have flash backs of how it came along!! It's just not right to "make" her have it.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:11:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure she should and I'm pro-life. However just because exceptions exist does not mean anyone who has a mind to it should be allowed to get away with it. Abortion should be regulated however before it can be regulated properly people must first recognize that most abortions are for the wrong reasons and stop focusing on the exceptionally rare circumstances as excuses for the rest to get away with it.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:18:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
She absolutely should be allowed to have an abortion. Making a nine year old child carry a baby should be considered child abuse!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:20:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no she shouldn't be granted an abortion. She should give birth to the child and then learn to share her freaking toys.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:21:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope that you are kidding Leanan.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:22:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Do I looke like I'm kidding, sweetheart?
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:23:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I really hope so.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:33:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am pro-life, and boy that's a rough decision to make. I don't believe in abortion under an circumstances, but then again what risks would it pose to a nine-year-old to carry a baby, and what risks would be imposed on the child? I dunno I cannot take a stance on this one....
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:37:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am also prolife but in this case a nine year old? She shouldnt be forced to carry this baby and as for her comment on the toys, do you honestly think she could deal with having a baby?
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:42:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I certainly hope the decision to allow an abortion was made without delay.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 3:48:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
But then how will she ever learn the value of sharing?
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 4:16:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Leanan, sharing comes with time. This little girl is not ready for the mental ramifications of a having a child. I definately think that this abortion should take place, although I am pro-life. And besides, how sick is it to punish a little girl for something that is not her fault?
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 4:20:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's her fault for being so selfish!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 4:24:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
she sould she is only 9 that's not right for someone that young to have to worry about this also she does have a dumb reason for wanting it but still she shoud get it
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 4:25:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
But 9!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 4:31:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Kinky she is nine years old! Do you really think that shes thinking about how its going to impact her future!!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 8:00:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course not. All she can think about is keeping all her toys to herself like a selfish little brat. Let her learn a lesson!
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 8:06:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
This is depressing. The girl should be allowed to have an abortion. I doubt her body is ready for pregnancy and going through pregnancy at such a young age could only have adverse effects on her mind and body. A person this is age is definitely not prepared to have and care for a child.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 8:09:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutely she should have an abortion without delay.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 8:14:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
THe only time where it would be appropriate to say, "Let her learn a lesson," would be if she had been having sex consensually, not if she was raped. The fact that she doesn't want to share her toys should have noting to do with her keeping a child. Should we make all little girls that don't want to share their toys carry children, to "teach them a lesson"?
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 4/14/03 - 8:25:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, that would be a very good idea.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 4/19/03 - 11:33:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think that she should have the abortion. shes freakin 9 that would proally warp her for life
