I'm sure we can all agree this is a devastating thing- my question (and its a genuine one) is how can those that are pro-life justify denying this child an abortion and making her continue a pregnancy- the emotional and physical trauma she is facing is, to my mind, enormous. I really do not understand how anyone can deny her a termination?

In this case it's the law. There's no pro-life vs pro-choice debate. It is crap though, especially as it's acknowledged that there is a risk to the mother's life (it feels so wrong to call a child a mother). If she dies in labour will the scumbag who raped her get convicted of murder?

That poor child Even when I considered myself pro life, i still would have said this was disgusting. That little girl's life is at risk, there absolutely should be the option to abort.
