Majority in Brazil reject abortion for babies with microcephaly


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Mar 4, 2016 / 12:25 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The majority of Brazilians are opposed to abortion in cases where the baby exhibits microcephaly, a new survey finds.

The poll comes amid continued concerns over the possible role of Zika virus in causing microcephaly.

Released by Brazil’s Datafolha Institute, the survey indicates that 58 percent of Brazilians reject the practice of abortion in cases of pregnant women infected with the Zika virus. Just 32 percent think the woman should have an abortion and 10 percent had no opinion.


My thanks to the majority! :thumbsup:


God bless them.
