1. A pregnant woman is rushed to hospital in agony. She is diagnosed as having a previously undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy in her fallopian tube.
2. The baby is alive but a rupture of the tube is imminent and inevitable.
3. When it ruptures the mother's life will be in immediate danger.
4. The baby is too young to survive being removed.
5. The doctor says they must operate and abort the fetus to save the mother's life but the procedure WILL kill the baby.
This is a scenario that happens regularly in hospitals.
Is it ethically correct to agree to the abortion? Yes or no?
cofty i said, yes because the purpose was not to kill the baby, the babys death was not the goal - Unstop
The illustration of the fireman is nonsense. It is the growth of the baby in the fallopian that will lead to the death of the mother so the life of the baby must be terminated.
You agreed this was moral.
