…but the news keeps rolling in.

Nicaragua has just banned – by 52 parliamentary votes to nil – all forms of abortion, even in the cases of rape, incest, and medical emergency. Even ectopic pregnancies. The ban has been passed within days of forthcoming elections, with even those Sandinistas who oppose it too scared to say no in case it alienates the church or the voters.

See here and here.

And for those of you who think that Muslims get outraged at trifles, think on this:

“In 2003, Sandinista-backed women’s groups helped a 9-year-old Nicaraguan girl who had been raped in Costa Rica return to her homeland to get an abortion, outraging the Roman Catholic Church.”

Yes – Catholic Church outraged at nine-year-old rape victim who became pregnant and was enabled by women’s groups to get an abortion.
