2 years ago, browbeaten by the local RCC our spineless politicians added a complete ban to abortion to the constitution. And while abortion was never legal at least before it made allowances for cases in which the health of the mother was in grave danger. Mind you, that never stopped anyone from procuring abortions, only now, if your case cannot be handled discreetly by your doctor things get dicey.
Now a young girl’s life (link to BBC video) will be sacrificed on the altar of moronic beliefs from stone age peasants. The only reason she is in danger from not terminating the pregnancy is because her parents can’t afford to whisk her away from the country to some less backward spot on the planet. The law, once again, only applies to the poor.
Way to go politicos!
