This is your brain on Pro-Life.

In Brazil, a 9 year old girl was raped and impregnated by her step father. When she had an abortion, the local Bishop had her mother (who arranged for the procedure) excommunicated. The Vatican has now upheld that excommunication.

Think about it: a nine year-old, is raped by her step father. If the Vatican had it's way, she would be forced to endure the entire pregnancy and give birth.

I remind you: this is the same Catholic hierarchy that routinely condemns pro-Choice, Catholic Democratic politicians.

It's a textbook case for the need for the separation of Church and State.
