A 12-year-old girl was raped by a neighbour in Jujuy. She´s now 23 weeks pregnant. Her family has requested an abortion, but local doctors refuse to carry out that procedure. On top of that, the “pro life group” “Fundación Más Vida” back the doctors´decision, in spite of the fact that the girl´s life is in danger. Besides, she has a legal right to do so. Why should the rest interfere? I wonder: if the daughter of one of those anti-abortion activists´ were in that situation, would they act likewise? Honestly, I doubt it. There´s a lot of hypocrisy in those people´s behaviour. A lot of “Do what I say but not what I do”. In my opinion, they should mind their own business.
