EWTN Catholic Q&A
choosing the life of the mother
Question from Tina Stryker on 02-09-2013:

What is Catholic belief on the choosing of a mother's life over the life of an unborn child when death of one is imminant? And where can I find that stated in the CCC or bible? (St. M...? chose her child to live over herself-church's belief). I want to be firm with non-Catholics and protestants.They always want biblical proof.

Please access American Life League's website (www.all.org), click on the "Education" icon, then the "Abortion" tab, and scroll down to the section that deals with "Life of the Mother" questions. You will find information that, I beleive, will be helpful to you.
