EWTN Catholic Q&A
Re - re: life of the mother
Question from wondering on 09-18-2012:

Is there never an instance where a baby needs to be delivered early to save the life of the mother? I knew of someone with kidney disease who went full-term and then died afterwards.

Answer by Judie Brown on 09-20-2012:

DEAR WONDERING

The Catholic Church does not permit procured abortion in any instance.
