Nicaraguan President Enrique Bolanos has signed into
law a ban on all abortions, even in cases when a woman's life is judged
to be at risk.
There will be no more exceptions like the case of nine year old girl, raped and four months pregnant, whose parents wanted to save her from carrying the pregnancy to term and managed to secure an abortion for her.
Her parents and doctors who carried out the procedure were excommunicated from the Roman Catholic church and prosecutors threatened to bring charges against those responsible.
Nicaraguan Roman Catholic bishops wrote an open letter to
the government asking whether there was any real difference between
abortion and terrorist suicide bombings.
Well, they won, and now all women and children who become pregnant via rape and/or are in danger from pregnancy will have to be aborted by illegal means, leave the country for an abortion if they have the money, or carry the pregnancy to term and/or die.
