Please help--can you name this OB GYN saint in 20 minutes?



I have 20 minutes

Who was the Saint canonized by JPII that was an OB GYN that didn’t abort her baby when she had ovarian cancer. This decision ultimately cost her live.



We don’t exactly have a bank of aplogists answering questions seconds after they come in. So it takes considerably longer than twenty minutes for a question to be answered.

But here finally is the answer: Saint Gianna Beretta Molla.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
