And that procedure can not be an abortion. So you have to do something else that causes an abortion but isn't just an abortion.

How about this statement from Nicaragua?

"The Pastoral Vicar of the Archdiocese of Managua, Msgr. Miguel Mantica, said last week that the Catholic Church does not support or approve of abortion, nor does it approve of so-called "therapeutic" abortion".

Or the Vatican

"Correcting confusion generated by the recent statement of a Vatican official, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) issued a statement today confirming that so called “therapeutic” abortion “has not been and can never be” accepted as Catholic teaching.

The document is a response, it says, to the “manipulation and instrumentalization” of an article by Bishop Rino Fisichella published in L’Osservatore Romano on March 15, 2009 about the case of an abortion procured for a 9 year-old Brazilian girl who had been impregnated by her stepfather."

So their official stance is let the little 9 year old slut burst. The step father is all good though, after all the catholic church knows how seductive 9 year olds are.
