In case you were wondering
The official position of the Catholic Church is that it's better for a 9-year old rape victim to risk death (by carrying twins to term) than to get an abortion.

This just happened in Brazil, and everyone involved (except the girl, who had been serially abused by her stepfather) are scheduled for excommunication.

At that point, if I were her mother or one of the people who cared for her, my reaction to that would be, "screw you. Excommunicate me. I don't care. And don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."

Yeah, the official position of many churches is generally "fuck you." The world badly needs a new way of relating to the Divine.
