Sri Lanka nun faces charges over mother and baby home (failed to report underage pregnancy)

A nun in Sri Lanka is to appear in court in connection with the failure to disclose an underage pregnancy at a mother and baby shelter.

Sister Mary Eliza, superior nun at a Missionaries of Charity convent near Colombo, was given bail on Monday.

Police raided the convent last week after child welfare officers said they suspected her of involvement in child-trafficking, claims the church denies.

During the raid police say they found at least one underage pregnant girl.

Hmm, so Planned Parenthood makes national headlines and gets stripped of federal funding as a result of right-wing activists with chips on their shoulders making up cases of underage pregnancies. But this Catholic nun probably will get a free pass because after all, she was a good lady preaching the Word of God.

1. The MCs are Mother Theresa's order
I actually joined them when I was a rebellious 21yo (I know, I know - it was a dark time in my life). There is never only one nun involved in anything at MC facilities. I will be following this story for sure...
