Progress!

Further proof of my theory that the entire world is moving backwards as quickly as possible, this time from Paraguay :

“Paraguay’s government has failed to protect a 10-year-old rape victim who is being denied an abortion, United Nations human rights experts said on Monday.

In a statement released in Geneva, the four experts said Paraguay has refused to provide treatment to save the life of the girl, who is five months pregnant, ‘including safe and therapeutic abortion in a timely manner.’

The case has set off a national debate in Paraguay where abortion is banned in all cases — even rape — except when the mother’s life is in danger.”

I’m guessing roughly 1/3 of my fellow Americans would be perfectly fine with, if not downright excited by, this horrible news.

On what planet is forcing a ten year old girl to give birth not a threat to her health?
