Woah! 11 year old girl in Chile is pregnant!

I saw this article the other day about an 11 year old girl in Chile who is pregnant due to being sexually abused by her step-father. Yell

Apparently in Chile, ALL abortions are banned, even in cases of rape, mother's life at risk, etc. Even though the 11 year old wants to keep her baby, people are using this case as a rallying cry for the laws to be changed.

As I've said before, I'm pro-choice so I DEFINITELY think there should be exceptions made for rape/abuse, mother or baby's life at risk, etc. What do you think?
