Absolutely disgusted

Abortion is a very difficult subject and I realize that this is an issue that reasonable people can differ on, but I was still shocked when I read this article about unreasonable people differing about abortion.

The basics: a nine-year old Nicaraguan girl was raped, contracted a venereal disease and became pregnant. Nicaraguan officials were asking the family not get an abortion and the nation's Catholics were adamant that the child could be safely carried to terms. The family managed to arrange an abortion for the child and now Nicaragua's family affairs minister wants the girl taken from her parents and the Catholic church intimated that the family could be excommunicated for this.

And what did the little girl who was pregnant think about this? She just didn't want to share her toys with another child.
