I wasn't even going to post on the nine-year-old raped by her stepdaddy and ex-communicated (along with her mamma and her doctors) by the Catholic Church for aborting the twin fetuses which would have killed her had she carried them to term b/c, you know, abortion is murder and that is wrong (but raping nine-year-olds is just dandy) I was just gone leave that shit alone because I am so sick of dealing with the sick sick sick shit handed to me by the patriarchy this week --
But I could not DEAL with the IDIOT comments left over at Megan's site after she posted about the story: To Wit:
1) I doubt very much this story is true. Usually when stories come out like this, one finds out later, a few weeks later that the young girl in question was older and her family claimed she was younger to secure the abortion.
2) Thomasblair- actually the Church is just upholding its consistent position that all life is sacred and shouldn't (no matter the circumstance) be snuffed out. Of course, the Church also just runs the largest network of hospitals throughout the world- so meh on them right?

Would Islam permit her to have an abortion? My guess is that she would be publicly humiliated for "promiscuity".

And this charmer:
...If the facts are true, then her abortion is ok--life for life. However, if not--if she would survive and have no bodily defects---then no, she should not be allowed.
note that the stepfather is only suspected---no proof. She could have been sexually active, given that she apparently had hit puberty before age 9 (!).
Does anyone notice that last wbit of weirdness? I didn't know 9 year olds could have kids. I thought puberty was 11-13 in girls. 9 seems...unbelievable.

Who goes on through the thread to say even more appalling things. He's the worst of the lot over there, though several of the commenters make me gag.
Men hate you, Twisty says. She ain't lying.
