If you’re being dumb, I’m also dumb. It seems like some of the replies don’t want to answer you directly because they are afraid of what the direct answers are, so they obfuscate by taking around in circles and telling you that you aren’t asking the right questions.
From what I DO understand from
Question 4. What does the Magisterium say about the moral liceity of these three procedures?
Reply: The Magisterium is silent on these three specific procedures. There appears to be universal acceptance of salpingectomy among ethicists. Removal of the tube indirectly causes the death of the embryo. There is less agreement on the use of methotrexate, and there are strong concerns about the moral liceity of salpingostomy, which appears to be a direct attack on the embryo. Nonetheless, in the absence of magisterial direction, the use of any of these procedures becomes a matter of conscience. In the face of the certain death of the embryo regardless of the procedure used (or not used), one may weigh what is proportionately bene cial to preserve a woman’s fertility.
is that the Church accepts abortion in these cases.
Period. No need to start to cloud the issue with “direct” and “indirect,” or intent, or whatever.
