So it was for a Romanian girl raped by her uncle and denied an abortion under Romania’s strict reproductive laws. The same sorts of laws the anti-choice crowd here would like to impose on Canadian women. Anti-choice groups in Romania have sought to impede the girls access to an abortion even though the church has stated that this was an unusual case and the decision was best left to the family. In the words of her mother. “”Panel after panel, meeting after meeting. In the meantime, my poor girl gets more and more terrified.”
Fortunately for the girl involved a “Romanian woman in Britain who has come to her rescue.” She will be flying to Britain shortly to have the pregnancy terminated. Now perhaps the family can get on with the process of healing.
