Update: Could she have been saved?
The Dominican teenage girl who was at the subject of an abortion debate died after she lost her battle with cancer. The pregnant teen was denied chemo for a period of time because of the Dominican Republic’s strict anti-abortion laws. While she did begin to receive treatment, it was almost a month after she was admitted. Her mother stated, “My daughter’s life is first. I know that (abortion) is a sin and that it goes against the law … but my daughter’s health is first.” She was thirteen weeks pregnant.
Should the teen have received treatment immediately after being admitted despite the strict law?

There was a good chance the girl could’ve been saved if she recieved treatment sooner. These people not only avoided to save this teenage girl’s life but also the babies. I hope they feel guilty, more then one life has been lost. I completely agree with the mother, the girl’s life should’ve been first.
As a catholic I find abortion to be murder and wrong. But because of a “debate” they went as far to risk someone’s life. That is wrong.

“We have revived the practice of child sacrifice to the new deities of casual sex and convenience.”
You know what they say, ignorance is bliss.

@RM omg i love you (no homo), lol yall dont even know what a fetus is. Medical Definition of fetus /fe·tus/ (fēt´us) [L.] the developing young in the uterus, specifically the living (oh snap dumbasses) unborn offspring in the postembryonic period, in humans from nine weeks after fertilization until birth. Know what your even talking about before blindly just following something that you just see as a way out of your responsibilities
“Have we become so lazy as a society, that to dodge our responsibilities, we will even rip the children from our bodies?” -Oprah
THis has nothing to do with your body (for some it does because who would want to gangbang the prego chick right, thats what goes through your mind.) it has to do with acceptance, responsibility, and accepting risks. RM2 is right, once you put a guys dick in you, its on like donkey kong, you just told GOd, hey im willing to risk it. If you didnt want the risk maybe you shoulve stuck to the pill, or hell getting your tubes tied, or making yourself steril by putting bleach in your water, whatever makes you happy with the fact you wont have a baby. But if you do have it, theres something called adoption, and there are plenty of people who cant have kids because they are steril, so they adopt. Just think, your kid could be making someone else happy, but no your selfish, you couldnt just take the pill and you couldnt just accept your responsibility, and this rant has absolutly nothing to do with how i feel about the rare situation this young lady was put in, im aiming this at you little “oh i have freewill so let me deny a child his and worry about my bodys image” princesses.

@RM2 Pro-life for life. IF you dont want it after its born, adoption, no ones forcing you to keep the child lil drama queens.

My body my decision? Consent to sex isnt consent to pregnancy? Bullshit when you made the ******* decision to put a guys dick in you you made a decision and it came with risks that you knew were real, yea its your body, but that baby is coming out of you one of two ways either its being born or its going to be ripped out of your body, damaging it even more than just having the baby, what gives you the ******* right to deny a child his/her life, maybe someone should put a gun to YOUR head and ask you if you want to live or die and oh by the way no matter what you decide im going to ******* shoot you anyways. Theres birth control for a damn reason, oh by the way, the phrase “born” just means seperating from the female body.. you know your BIRTHday, the day you were removed from your mother, it wasnt the day you grew a nervous system, its still a life even before being born dumbass. If it can move on its own… its alive, and last time i checked, once that egg is fertilized, the whole thing starts moving, so you might as well suck it up and deal with the responsiblity, quit being a mopey ******* hitler idealist brat, have the baby, give it to adoption, and then move on with your life. Oh and child isnt a punishment for sex, HERPIES, the clap, AIDS, those are punishments, at least a baby will leave your body after 9 months, those mother fuckers wont.

Omg poor girl. I swear this is why freaking countries should not be ran with religion. Its so stupid. They wanted to save a life with no abortion but they failed n it back fired and killed two people. That’s ridiculous. R.I.P I feel so bad for her. </3

She should have been able to get treatment, because regardless the baby died anyways, and the girl could have been saved to later have future children…this is so so sad. =/

“Its the murdering of an innocent and defenseless life of the unborn child.”
This does not make sense. If someone is unborn, they are not alive and, therefore, have no life and is not a person.

True the baby and the mother died. But isnt it better to say that they were meant to go rather than their lives were taken from them by murder? Which is exactly what abortion is. Its the murdering of an innocent and defenseless life of the unborn child.
