Yes, the law will be most likely voted, the conservative socialists having about 55% of the votes. Not having an answer in another thread I allow myself to copy paste a morality/law related questions concerning the new total abortion ban in Poland.
I struggle especially with one of its aspects, namely the case of the babies suffering from anencephaly and similar conditions. As far as I know the Catholic teaching considers “death” a medical category, and as such the brain death is recognized as the “true” death. How to deal with the situations when the foetus does not possess large parts of the brain, or is completely deformed? Should mothers serve the same time in jail for “killing” this kind of baby as for killing the normal one? But on the other hand, how to define “death” in this case, if there is no brain that can be considered dead?
Frankly speaking, I don’t like the new law. In theory, a teenage raped girl could finish for three years in jail for taking a “morning after” pill. I am not 100% sure if this is the right approach. But this is the medical problem of completely malformed children which makes me feel particularly uneasy. Does anyone of you know some well-though Catholic books dealing with these borderline cases, and especially how to sanction them in civil law?
Thank you in advance!
