AUSTRALIA: ABORTION ORDERED FOR 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL


In the Australian state of Queensland, doctors have been ordered to perform an abortion on a 12-year-old girl. The girl is thought to be about 18 weeks pregnant after a suspected rape.

Supreme Court Judge Margaret Wilson ordered the abortion using the drug misoprostol after medical advice that the pregnancy posed serious dangers to the mental health of the intellectually disabled girl.

Police are investigating the case and searching for the father of the unborn child who is thought to be living in Queensland.
