Another in the Bad Religion series....
So many people in so many religions, or of no religion, are good people trying to deal with difficult ethical questions. I get that. But a case like the following is just ... well, I have no words. That the church's response was to excommunicate those who performed an abortion on a 9 year old girl carrying twins (what were her chances of safely carrying to term?) when it did nothing official against the stepfather who has been raping her since she was 6 is stunning.
