I’d like to say that even though I highly disagree with your opinion, I do respect it. I would like to ask though, what are your views on abortion if the mother and/or the fetus have the likely hood of dying during the pregnancy or childbirth? If you knew your S/O was going to die along with the child, would you have her back if she made the hard and personal choice to end the pregnancy and try for another baby?

Abortion is never necessary to save the life of a mother. When a pregnant mother experiences a life or death situation, such as with an ectopic pregnancy, she must seek immediate medical care. That care must focus on saving the life of both mother and child. If during this care the child is tragically lost, no abortion has occurred. Abortion is the intentional elective killing of a child. Clearly, this is not the case when a mother is faced with the devastating loss of her child during a pregnancy crisis. Please try to understand the difference.

I’ll leave you with the Dublin Declaration signed by over 1,000 doctors and medical professionals…

As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.

We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child.

We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.

A child’s life is never disposable. Abortion is never necessary.
