Question from Rachel D'silva on 11-15-2012:

If the mothers life is in danger due to complications in pregnancy should the baby be aborted?

Answer by Judie Brown on 11-19-2012:

Dear Rachel

The Catholic Church teaches that there is no situation in which a preborn child's life can be intentionally taken even when the argument is that the life of the mother is at stake. And, according to medical experts, an abortion is never required to save a mother's life.
