This is a very happy week for my family, first my 80th birthday, and then Thanksgiving Day with all of us. Even our pinochle group gave me a card and a party too. We have many things to be thankful. I'm thankful for this group on Catholic Answers too.

This Annunciation night
God's plan for our delight
Union between heaven and earth
The yes to God for His birth.

Extremely well said. Thank you!
"A doctor saying that there is danger in the future is not the same thing as someone's life being in present danger. Be very careful; medical predictions, though certainly useful in planning treatment, have been used in attempts to justify euthanasia, another little no-no.
Acting to save the life of someone who is not yet in danger is not the same thing as acting when the danger is becoming manifest. We are not talking about removing an appendix here, but of the termination of 2 lives because of a prediction. Should the danger have become manifest, the issue would be different, since then the risk would be actually becoming realized.
Every pregnancy carries a finite risk of death to the mother - every one. Using the presence of risk, before the risk materializes, to justify termination of life is to justify abortion on demand.
Is the girl a victim? Yes. Is the father something that would get me banned for explicitly naming in this post? Undoubtedly. Do we really endorse the logic that "the father is clearly a [insert banned epithet here], therefore the unborn must be murdered?" Let me know if we do. I'll think about it while I'm cleaning my gun, because if that be the case, there's a lot of folks out there who should have been done in a long time ago, and there's lost time to be made up.
Sound risky? Want to preemptively eliminate me? Well relax, because I, for one, am going to be very hard to convince that the despicable nature of the father justifies the murder of the offspring. But you can try; everyone needs a hobby.
