Hi folks, back from Vienna (report will follow sometime - busy catching up atm and waiting for someone to arrive at the local tube so I can 'go and fetch')

BUT, I just read this appalling story and thought I'd share. This is utterly disgusting.....

Dreadful isn't it? I read that last week and can't understand it at all.

Thanks for your I'm in Vinenna text by the way! My in-laws were quite impressed that I knew someone who was in Vienna. :)

That's just horrible.
Age doesn't matter in a decision like this.
I personally do think there are better options then abortion (like adoption) but that's just my opinion. Everyone should be able to make their own choice, no matter the circumstances.

Did you have fun in Vienna?

Yeah, that was the one that was getting me. They're saying that whether she is or is not mature enough to decide whether she wants to continue the pregnancy is dependent on which answer she comes up with?

Thats a bit much isn't it?

Even some pro-lifers I know maintain that girls that age shouldn't carry to term because of the potential damage to their bodies. Carrying to term at that age just isn't a good plan. Psychologically and physically she is not mature enough to have a child.

If it was happening in a countre where abortion was illegal and they were blocking her travelling to another country to have an abortion then there would be uproar. Nevermind it happening in a state which already allows abortion.

Odd decision. It'll get struck down anyway, being entirely in opposition to existing state law.

But will it be struck down *in time*, that is the question - they probably know it will be struck down but if the girl is already in her third trimester or worse, has already delivered... they will have succeeded in their goal regardless.
