Church condemns abortion performed on raped girl, 11

From The Guardian:

A Vatican official has said the Catholic church will excommunicate a medical team who performed Colombia’s first legal abortion on an 11-year-old girl, who was eight weeks pregnant after being raped by her stepfather.

Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, the president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family, said in addition to the doctors and nurses, the measure could apply to “relatives, politicians and lawmakers” whom he called “protagonists in this abominable crime”.

The girl, whose identity has not been released, had “fallen in the hands of evildoers“, the cardinal said in an interview with local television on Tuesday.

Are they going to excommunicate the stepfather who raped and abused this poor girl?

If you ever think about travel to Russia and visit Moscow, you might like visit Moscow subway. It’s definetely worth looking. First of all architecture of Moscow subway is astonishing, I think I’ll make a separate post about architecture of Moscow subway, because each stop, each station is so nice. During Soviet era amounts worth of millions dollars were invested in the construction of Moscow subway.

Each station is like museum, with huge patchworks occupying some walls, high ceilings and antique type chandeliers. And in those magnificent interriors nowadays you can meet people that look like really weird.
