I first saw this item on Rachel Maddow’s Twitter page (I don’t “get” Twitter, but I’m trying to keep an open mind), when the Roman Catholic Church was merely voicing its complaints over a medical decision to abort the pregnancy of a 9-year old girl who had been raped by her stepfather and was pregnant with twins.  Bad enough, right?  Now the doctors and the girl’s mother have been excommunicated (but not the stepfather, because he didn’t end the life of a fetus) by the regional bishop, and the Vatican supports it.  (Follow-up hat tip to Duff.)

(Sorry for another prolonged silence.  My paper is due on the 16th!)
