Groups Oppose Abortion For 11-Year-Old in Romania
Twenty church groups on Thursday urged a government committee not to allow an 11-year-old girl who was raped by her uncle to go to Britain for an abortion. The antiabortion Christian Orthodox groups also threatened to press charges if the girl were allowed to have a termination in Romania. Their position was in contrast to the official stand of the Romanian Orthodox Church, which said the decision should be left to the girl's family.

The Uncle needs to take a long walk off a short bridge over the grand canyon.

she's still a kid seriously....I hope they bring her uncle to justice and just don't let him run around free and able to harm other children

I couldn't imagine having to go through any of that at 11 yrs old.

This is a tragic story - made worse by public comment and opinion on a very private matter.

I feel so bad for this poor girl. Raped by her 19 yr old uncle and found pregnant and then finding her private pain exposed all over international news - that's a lot of trauma to go through.

This is a good example of where abortion should be allowed.

I am against abortions but in this situation.....the answer should be on the girl's family and not for the public to decide.

It's a little late to abort an 11 year old, isn't it? I mean don't they still have to be in the womb?
