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...

Yes, she should have an abortion.
And, of course 9 year olds can get pregnant as long as they're menstruating.

I cannot comprehend what physical and phsycological damage this is going to do to this child. Her boy is no where new physically developed enough for this.. and as far as not wanting to share toys..
she's 9 that is a typical statement from a CHILD she should not be having a CHILD. I cannot believe this is even up for debate
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 9/1/06 - 8:31:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, Children aren't supposed to have children, in my eyes.

It would be a pretty stupid idea making a nine year old have a baby.

if this is the same story I read, I think everyone involved in the abortion are facing excommunication.

ok, teenagers having babies is one thing. Even though i severely detest the thought of abortion.....a 9 year old mother is extreme!!! I highly doubt that she would be able to carry the baby to term....

Church Condemns Abortion Performed on Raped Girl, 11

Dear God. Sometimes, the people of my religion can be total idiots.

I can't believe this is even up for debate. The abortion should have been performed right away.

we have two cases here of mentally retarded girls in their early twenties, mental age of between 5 and 9 years old, both raped by family members.

One is already 5 months pregnant.. they still haven't approved the abortions.

I hate this stupid f*cking CATHOLIC country. It disgusts me.

Yes she should be granted an abortion.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 9/20/06 - 10:13:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
she has to, theres no way she can be a mother!
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 9/20/06 - 10:14:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
its a horrible story
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 9/20/06 - 10:14:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
why the hell are they debating it!! Is the answer no obvious- she's only a child herself! bloody politics.

Good, a kid that age isn't physically or mentally prepared to have children.

I don't believe the baby should be aborted. I understand that the girl is very young, but it is wrong to kill a baby. She should give birth to the baby, and then give the baby up for adoption if her parents will not take care of the baby. And it is selfish for her to say "I don't want a baby because I don't want to share my toys". Deal with it, sister. That part annoys me, but I do feel bad for her because she has to deal with something like this at such a young age. Still, it would be sad if the baby was aborted. What if that baby would have been the next Einstein, had they not gotten rid of it? I think that if the girl is going to die (I couldn't tell from the story whether she would or not), that abortion may unfortunately be what has to be done.

I hope that they do what is right for the child. What I mean by that is the NINE YEAR OLD girl. She has been raped and is now pregnant. I hope that an abortion is granted. She is going to have enough to deal with when she is emtionally old enough to deal with her rape. Poor, no longer innocent, child.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 9/26/06 - 9:30:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
SHe should keep it. For no other reason than that it is human life.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 9/26/06 - 9:33:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Free abortions for ALL!!!
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 9/27/06 - 8:35:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
How is she even menstruating at that age? I think having at baby at nine years old would put her health in danger. Childrens bodies simply aren't made to produce offspring. Disgusting.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 10/2/06 - 3:16:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
The story isn't avaliable anymore, but if she was raped (was she?) and she is nine, then I would say yes even though I'm prolife. There's always a gray area.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/3/06 - 7:11:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
I really don't care.
