Declaration of the archdiocese of Olinda and Recife on Brazilian abortion case

I blogged earlier this week on the real issues in the tragic case of the nine-year old girl in Brazil whose twins were aborted and last week when the news broke .

Today, in Rorate Caeli, those most closely involved with the pastoral care of the little girl at the centre of this case have made a statement.

I think it's important to read it in order to obtain a more balanced picture of how the Catholic Church acted in this matter.
