An 11-year-old Romanian girl who is 21 weeks pregnant after being raped by an uncle will be able to have an abortion, even though it is forbidden by law.
"If I can't do this my life will be a nightmare," she said, according to a text read out by government committee member Vlad Iliescu.
Some 20 Christian Orthodox groups had threatened to press charges if the girl was allowed to abort the foetus.
