  •  The fetus was doomed anyway (5+ / 0-)

    Only if there was certainty that the abortion would make things worse would I agree with your statement.  But in all other scenarios, I don't know what difference it would make to do the abortion.

    They already knew the fetus wasn't going to make it, and if ridding her of the pregnancy might help her combat whatever she was experiencing, it would have been worth the try.  But if the only reason they didn't do the abortion was because it was against their religion, that's different. No religion should value the life of a 17-week-old fetus more than the life of the mother.
