    Vatican prelate defends abortion for 9-year-old

    Vatican prelate defends abortion for 9-year-old

    Earlier this month, the archbishop of Recife, where the child and her family lives, made a public announcement about the excommunication, which is the church's most severe penalty. Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, a top Vatican official, has supported the archbishop.

    But Fisichella criticized the archbishop's public denunciation, writing that the girl "should have been above all defended, embraced, treated with sweetness to make her feel that we were all on her side, all of us, without distinction."
    Good to see somebody in the Vatican isn't making excuses or concocting theories to justify the vicious public attack by the Archbishop of Racife on a 9 year old girl.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Fisichella argued for a sense of "mercy" in such cases and respect for the Catholic doctors' wrenching decision, and strongly criticized fellow churchmen who singled out the doctors and mother for public condemnation.

    "Before thinking about excommunication, it was necessary and urgent to save her innocent life and bring her back to a level of humanity of which we men of the church should be expert and masters in proclaiming," Fisichella wrote.
    Kudos. I had wondered if they'd forgotten all about concepts like mercy. Fisichella is finally someone talking about the situation with language that isn't repulsive. Thank God.
