The issue of the morality of treating a woman with an ectopic pregnancy came up on another thread and we’ve had some discussion about it but I remain terribly confused.
Please read the discussion here (posts 57 and onward)
How can any one method of treatment be better or worse than the other when all result in death of the unborn, when it is known beforehand (regardless of method used) that that is what is going to happen and when that end is unavoidable regardless of whether treatment is given or not given? Is it wrong to just accept the death as inevitable and use the means of treatment which will best serve the mother?
Is the advice given on previously mentioned thread really the Church’s official position or just someone’s interpretation of it?
This is the kind of thing which people of faith need to know and understand before they get into an emergency room and many of us, including myself, just don’t.
