Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Governance, Health, Religion

Luis Soares, from the blog Pragmatismo Político (Political Pragmatism) quotes [1] [pt] Bishop of Guarulhos, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, Luiz Gonzaga Bergonzini, who said that “women lie when they say they were raped”. In the bishop's mind, he adds, women lie in order to have abortions, because the Brazilian law allows it in case of rape.
