<FONT size=5>Girl, 9, to abort twins</FONT><P class=byline style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT size=1>From correspondents in Sao Paulo |Agence France-Presse|March 01, 2009 04:00am</FONT>
A NINE-year-old girl pregnant after years of alleged sexual abuse by her stepfather is likely to abort twins she is carrying in a case that has shocked Brazil, reports in Sao Paulo said. <!-- // END article intro ************************************** <!-- // article corpus ************************************** The Brazilian girl, who was not identified because she is a minor, was found to be four months pregnant after being taken to hospital suffering stomach pains, the news websites G1, pe360graus and the Diario de Pernambuco reported.
She was being cared for by a medical and psychological team in the <A class=media-search-keyword title="Search for more about Maternal-Child Institude across the News Network" href="http://search.news.com.au/search//0/?us=ndmnews&sid=23109&as=news&ac=ninews2&q=Maternal-Child Institude" target=_blank target=_blank>Maternal-Child Institude </A>in the northern city of Recife, close to her hometown of Alagoinha in Pernambuco state, they said.
"We don't know if she will develop the pregnancy up to the end because of the structure of her body. It is a big risk for her,'' the doctor who confirmed her pregnancy before she was taken to the institute, Jose Severiano Cavalcanti, told the Diario de Pernambuco.
"She doesn't have a pelvis able to support a gestation of twins,'' he said.
Abortion is illegal in Brazil except in cases of rape or if the woman's health is in danger.
The institute in Recife was unable to immediately confirm information about the case.
According to police accounts reported in the media, the 23-year-old stepfather was believed to have abused the girl since she was aged six, paying her one Brazilian real (about 77 Australian cents) for each sexual relation.
He also allegedly abused the girl's physically handicapped 14-year-old sister.
He was arrested on Thursday as he attempted to flee to another region in Brazil, and was being kept in protective custody.

There is talk of aborting the twins, but none about executing the rapist.

A very sad case. I hope every effort is taken to respect life.

It seems that the abortion is not just killing the twins for convenience, but perhaps a necessary premature induced delivery to save the life of the child.

He's in "protective custody".

A sad case, and one of those very rare situations when a medical abortion is necessary to save the girl's life.

Can't they surgically remove the twins via Caesarian without murdering them and let nature treat the children as premature births and let nature take it's course?

The problem is they cannot be brought to full term, and they may have to be born very early. If it were one child, maybe (the youngest women to bear a child that survived was 7 years old) but twins I doubt.
