Thanks Jen. I hope "amcoffee" agrees.

There really is no moral upside to the proposed action...

Abortion is killing. Is all killing murder? Our laws allow, and our bible allows some killing even of innocents. The history of the church is rife with justified killing. If the full term of the pregnancy will cause the death of the mother is there a question of self-defense? If the full term of a pregnancy of twins or other multiple births will cause the death of all the babies is the deliberate in-utero death of one justified as defense of others? Is the separation of doomed conjoined twins forbidden if it it will preserve the life of one to kill the other? I just see that morality is not always clear or easy. "Thou shall not kill" is easy to say but it may directly result in the death of someone else and therefore have you killed by not killing? Catholics do not refrain from military service as some other religions do, Amish, Quakers, etc. on the basis of religious beliefs. A bomber pilot or an artillary gunner, may kill many innocents in war. It's just not simple to me.

This is an entirely different topic than what is proposed here in this thread.
I suggest that this be posted as a new thread so as not to derail this one.
