Did the church excommunicate the step-father? In this situation how dare the church punish the only people who were acting in her best interest. There should not have to be any question about what was right or wrong here. What her DR's did was right. For a 9 yr old baby to attempt to carry twins is completely idiotic to believe that this is morally correct, not to mention it putting the girls life at stake. Carrying twins for a healthy grown woman can be difficult. I know that my God is a forgiving God and those who were Catholic and did the right thing by this child will be forgiven.

It's another victim of abusing and maltreating innocent women by using force, violence and perhaps threatening her life. The stepfather had a devil in him and it's really sad for this 9 year old girl whose life is ruined. I hope that she will be alright and be guided after her shock and trauma. May God keep and protect her.

Would it be fair for the stepfather to be sent to hell or would it be better to send him to heaven where he will suffer without his demon friends?
