Florida does it again

Oh, let's all have a field day with this one, shall we?

A pregnant 13-year-old girl in Florida has been told she cannot have an abortion because she lacks the maturity to make such a decision.

A state court granted an injunction which prevents the girl from terminating her pregnancy.

She is three months pregnant and had planned to have an abortion on Tuesday of this week.

Because, while she's not mature enough to make a responsible decision about her future, she's mature enough to raise a child? Right. This is from the BBC; no wonder the rest of the world thinks we're a pack of bloody looneys.
