(CNN) - The pregnant 12-year-old girl was strung out on heroin and looked like a walking skeleton when she arrived at the hospital. The conversation that followed, said Phoenix police chaplain John South, has stuck with him ever since.

As a christian i think that in good conscience i can say that its more than fine to abort when raped. that being said the worst situations of conception dont set precedent for all conceptions, i agree its a womans choice to have a baby but adults should be responsible and use contraception.  i know a few peeps who's parents considered getting an abortion and i cant imagine the world with out them.

Let's curve over population! ABORT! ABORT! ABORT!

BUT, let's be clear: the process can/may have long term emotional/psychological/physical effects.

If a woman can live with her choice and the risks involved, let it be so.

Is that the first thing that comes to mind when you think of abortion in these scenarios?

Well she sure didn't have a choice during the rape part.

I especially liked this quote from the article:

“I continue to be bemused by the ultraconservative lawmakers who say they want smaller government and less government intrusion into people’s lives, except when it comes to who you can marry and how many children you should have.”

My mistake, four coffins.

The only good thing is finally politicians are saying exactly why they don't support abortion in cases of rape. For decades none of them had the balls to say why -- they just repeated their stance on abortion with no clarification. Now they are publicly telling raped women that they should thank God for turning an awful situation into a wonderful "blessing" by becoming pregnant. The ugliness behind their stance has been revealed.

Maybe we should take God out of the equation and ask, "where was her mother in all of this?" Also, if this had never happened, she wouldn't have been admitted to the hospital and her father would've continued the abuse for who knows how long.

Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock. What is it about male Republicans? The only other men who spend this much time thinking about rape are rapists"


Great tweet from Steve Merchant on this topic. Thought you may appreciate it.

well, we are dealing with thre entiteis here not just two or one. there is now an innocent little life that has been conceived. do you think that the child that the fertilized egg will become will be ok with it?

if you want to abort, do it the old fashioned way and leave the rest of us out of it. you know, fall down stairs, drink some concoction like in the old days,  etc.

i am all for personal responsiblity andbelieve that people will pay for their sins one day, but the rest of us should not be forced to live in a society where murder is better than rape.

Are we? We are dealing with one individual and an embryo that has less brain cells than you do. So your question doesn't really make sense.

My stand is abortion is a women's health care issue and is between her and her doctor. The government need to stay out of women's uterus.

so life is based on braincells?

ending a human life is not murder?

you arent a human then.
