Should this 9-year-old girl be granted an abortion? See story.
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...
I'm pro life but in this situation I beleive that she should be able to have a baby. Pro-life people want to save kids, well that's what she still is and having this baby would ruin her life. She already dealt with rape, most adult women who are raped don't deal with the babies if they get pregnant, why should a 9 year old have to?

What the? Why? If you are a pro-lifer that would mean you believe that child to be a living human being, right? Then, is it not ridiculous to say that just because the child is the result of rape it's OK to murder it? If my wife had a kid with another guy and I shoot that kid when he's 40 is that OK in your book too??? Also, if the mothers life is in danger it's really a question of whose life you value more, as for deformities, why not just let it be born then if three doctors agree it's not fit to live send it to Auschwitz and... Wait, they already did that in Nazi Germany? I agree, it's much better to not give them a chance at all!<

What if the fetus would have been the next Hitler had tey not gotten rid of it?
