A Moral Outrage

The Catholic Church hierarchy in Brazil makes it explicit: yes, they fully intended for the 9 year old rape victim to die in pregnancy rather than have an abortion. From a letter published in the Osservatore Romano and signed by four priests and their lawyer:

4. We do not agree [with Archbishop Fisichella] that the "decision is hard... for the moral law itself". Our Holy Church continues to proclaim that the moral law is exceedingly clear: it is never licit to eliminate the life of an innocent person to save another life.
